Global Option in Education and Human Ecology

Section Items

The Global Option in Education and Human Ecology (GO EHE) is an exciting program for all EHE students in good academic standing.

Participating students have the opportunity to enhance their ability to communicate with and work alongside individuals from other cultures. This is achieved through experiences abroad, globally themed coursework, and a culminating project. Students will also maintain an e-portfolio to record and reflect on their experiences. GO EHE activities are designed to equip our students with the skills they need to thrive in their careers and be more competitive candidates for graduate study.

The GO EHE program is designed to be completed without adding significant time to graduation and allows students to come up with individual plans. Successfully completing the requirements will earn students the Education and Human Ecology Global Option designation on their transcript.
