Academic Opportunities

The institution's academic mission is central to the work of OGEE and the Office of International Programs. OGEE's work offers direct support of the UNC Charlotte Prospect for Success with emphasis on the Global Awareness learning outcome. By the time an undergraduate student completes his/her degree, our goal is to ensure that each student's knowledge of and appreciation for global perspectives has increased. Two credit bearing initiatives toward this goal are the International Enrichment Seminar offered through University College and taught by OGEE staff, and the Global Engagement Scholars Program offered through the CLAS Department of Global Studies and administered and taught by the OGEE.

International Enrichment Seminar

International Enrichment SeminarThe International Enrichment Seminar is a three-credit unit course designed to provide students new to UNC Charlotte with an overview of internationally-related resources and programs at the University and in the city, while exploring foundations of global perspectives and intercultural awareness. The seminar complements a broad range of introductory courses and can be applied to the Global Engagement Scholars Program. Learn more about the International Enrichment Seminar.
