Global Competency Certificate

The Global Competency professional development certificate is a non-credit, semester-long certificate that provides CSUSM students with the opportunity to address global issues and attain proficiency in global competency. Through the introduction of strategies that promote international awareness and appreciation of cultural diversity, students will develop skill sets that will give them a global advantage in their future careers. As global challenges become more complexuniversity-wide initiatives such the Global Commitment Committee are dedicated to preparing students to work harmoniously with other institutions on campus, coordinate efforts on the internationalization of campus events, and create opportunities for their global competency skills to flourish.
