Applications for Wesleyan’s Global Engagement Minor (GEM) are due in THREE DAYS!

The GEM is a unique opportunity for second-semester freshmen at Wes. This minor seeks to cultivate students’ intercultural development and global engagement by integrating:

  • Global Perspective Courses of YOUR choosing
  • Language Proficiency and/or Courses
  • Cultural Immersion Experiences (study abroad, fellowships, others)
  • … and two half-credit seminars to help you synthesize these experiences!

To apply, you only need to submit a 500-word max letter of interest, a list of your courses taken at Wes, and a brief recommendation from a professor (which can be submitted by the extended deadline of March 22).
