The Global Engagement Minor (GEM) is a unique opportunity for Wesleyan students to explore their academic interests, extracurricular activities, and language skills in learning how to navigate the world. The GEM provides flexibility like no other, allowing students to select courses that provide a global perspective according to their interests, continue previous language study or begin a new language, and engage in culturally immersive, international learning opportunities like study abroad to earn the minor.
First-year students, apply for the minor by March 21st by filling out this form.
GEM’s core requirements are:
- Introductory Seminar (CGST 205)
- Global Perspective Coursework
- Language Study (or previous language proficiency)
- Off-Campus Cultural Immersion
- Senior Capstone Seminar (CGST 305)
Throughout your time in GEM there are built-in opportunities to reflect on the ways in which your learning and experiences are contributing to your on-going growth as an inter-culturally sensitive, globally aware individual; all the specific learning objectives for the minor are spelled out here.
