Global Classrooms

Global Classrooms are an innovative way to gain international experience, virtually, from wherever you are! We want you to join forward-thinking students and faculty from Maryland and international peer institutions to gain real-world skills while collaborating on global challenges and designing contributive solutions for meaningful impact.

These experiences are available every term and range from immersive, project-based Signature courses to global engagement-focused Connections that exist as short-term programs or within other Maryland courses. Explore new ways of engaging and collaborating across diverse, multi-cultural environments in the virtual space.
