Global Option in Education and Human Ecology

The Global Option is a designation on a student’s transcript recognizing their international experiences during their time at Ohio State. To obtain this designation, students must complete a series of undergraduate courses and experiences with global components.

The Global Option, which can be incorporated into most EHE programs of study at any of our five campuses, is designed to be completed without adding significant time to graduation.
