International Immersion Experience

International immersion experiences will include study abroad faculty-led programs, exchange programs with partner universities and affiliates, and international internships. This will not be a required component of the GCC but a highly recommended piece. If a traditional undergraduate student is unable to travel abroad, the student can fulfill this requirement through the X-Culture Program.
