Global Distinction Courses

Course Areas

The goal of Valencia’s Global Distinction (VGD) is to prepare students to live and work in an interdependent and multicultural world, while having the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of a competent global citizen. To successfully earn the distinction, students must complete the VGD orientation session, have 15 credit hours from an approved list of courses, 15 co-curricular hours that focus on global learning, and complete a capstone project showcasing the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of a global citizen.
