Global Citizenship Online

BlockU is an intensive GenEd experience available for the first time to Online Students with the theme of Global Citizenship!  

  •  Participate with others in a virtual self-exploration and study of tough issues facing our planet and its inhabitants.
  • Explore and understand the footprint of your citizenship along with its rights and responsibilities, locally and globally.
  • Satisfy your interest in having and managing global impact.
  • Complete 6 General Education requirements plus affiliate classes (if you choose).
  • Engage in and learn some of the most cutting-edge online community-building programs.

GCO is for you if you are just starting college and want a framework around your GenEds or if you are on your way out and in need of a final few GenEds to get you ready to be part of the global economy.

Here is one example of how to make GCO work with your Schedule (although you can take any course in any sequence at your convenience):
