Global Perspectives Certificate

The Global Perspectives Certificate encourages NC State undergraduate students to pursue their international interests, both inside and outside of the classroom. The GPC also looks to recognize students for these pursuits by awarding students an official transcripted certificate upon completion of all GPC requirements. For ideas on activities and opportunities to count towards your GPC experience check out the Office of Global Engagement and the NC State Study Abroad.
