GO GLOBAL with the College of Education and Social Sciences

The College of Education and Social Sciences at West Texas A&M University has developed an initiative that promotes the acquisition of cultural knowledge and the development of cultural understanding through an innovative and multifaceted academic delivery system. The College's Go Global initiative connects graduate and undergraduate course content with the development of cultural knowledge and cross-cultural understanding; service leadership; academic research and writing; and the development of critical thinking and problem solving skills through experiential learning in international settings. The Go Global experience provides students the opportunity to apply new knowledge, skills, and cultural understanding to their professional roles in order to positively impact the local and global community. Additionally, participating faculty members and students engage in meaningful scholarly activity associated with the Go Global initiative.

Directed its inception in 2006, the Go Global initiative has extended the university classroom into the world to include the following faculty, short term study abroad opportunities in Mexico, India, Southeast Asia, Peru, England, New Zealand, Turkey, Greece, Egypt, Ecuador, South Africa, and Costa Rica.

Join us in expanding cultural awareness, appreciation, acceptance and engaging in meaningful action in a global context. GO GLOBAL with WTAMU!
