Why Global Scholars?

As a Creighton Global Scholar, you will be well positioned to live, work, compete and collaborate anywhere in the world as a thoughtful, educated and experienced global citizen.

Creighton’s Global Scholars Program is a four-year educational and professional development program.

It is designed to immerse select students in a variety of cultures for a rich academic, social and service experience where you will build networks with other students, faculty and alumni from around the world.

Through language study, specialized coursework, service-learning, research, internships, and interaction with leaders in the global community, Creighton Global Scholars will become experienced global citizens, ready for employment in international organizations upon graduation.

As a Global Scholar, you will complete a minimum of four global experiences during your time at Creighton, as well as a special companion seminar each semester to continually integrate global learning into each student’s major.

These experiences are designed to immerse you in a diverse mix of experiences and traditions that provide a unique and rich lens through which to focus your major studies.
