Professional success in an increasingly globalized world requires a nuanced understanding of how events, actors, and trends worldwide impact work at the local level, and how work at the local level is part of the broader global community. In the Global Affairs program, you will learn to interact effectively with people from diverse cultural, national, and linguistic backgrounds, in addition to adapting industry-specific policies and practices to the ever-changing demands of multinational and multicultural environments.
The Global Affairs program offers a contemporary, flexible set of courses designed to provide working professionals with the knowledge and skills they need to effectively navigate the complexities of an increasingly diverse and modern workplace. You will acquire the tools necessary to thrive in diverse environments and to achieve organizational goals while developing a greater understanding of your own role as a citizen of the greater global community.
Master’s Degree: A career-relevant master’s degree at University College requires 48 credit hours and is designed, delivered, and priced exclusively for working adults. Classes are offered online, on campus in the evenings, or in a combination of both.
Six courses are required to complete a graduate certificate, which is designed to help students sharpen their abilities or add to their skillset through a shorter, focused program. Credits earned through a graduate certificate program may be applied toward a master’s degree in the same area.
There has never been a better time to deepen your understanding of the world’s most pressing issues and events, and to enhance your ability to interact effectively with people from diverse cultural, national, and linguistic backgrounds. No matter your profession, the Global Affairs program will provide you with the skills and knowledge that you need to make a difference and thrive in an increasingly interconnected and globalizing world. You will build competencies that foster intercultural understanding and embody a cosmopolitan approach to complex challenges in the workplace and beyond. Global is here. Welcome to the program!

Teaching translation, for me, is a way to give something back to a profession that has given, and taught, so much to me. I am inspired by seeing the enthusiasm and passion younger colleagues have for languages and translation. How eager they are to learn to be good translators.
