The Global Fellows Program

The Mission

To prepare smart, humble, passionate individuals to be agents of change for a better world.

What is the Global Fellows Program?

A set of experiences and courses that will give you the knowledge, skills, and character to make a difference in the world.

What does the program require?

Like a minor, the program is designed to accompany most majors. Global Fellows will be required to do the following:

1) Must complete an academic year in one of Pepperdine's overseas programs:

a. Buenos Aires                 b. Florence                 c. Heidelberg

d. Lausanne                       f. London                    g. Shanghai

Note: As an alternative to a full year in one program, a student could do one semester in a European program and one semester in a non-European program. Important: summer programs do not fulfill this requirement.

2) Must complete the following required courses (22-23 units) and achieve a minimum GPA of 3.000 in these courses:
