Global Learning Term (GLT)

The Global Learning Term (GLT) program seeks to fulfill the international mission and educational essence of Azusa Pacific University by affording students self-directed, full-immersion learning experiences within a variety of cross-cultural contexts. Students enroll in special GLT courses (up to 16 units) that are completed during a summer and/or fall term (minimum three months) anywhere in the world.

Students who wish to take their Global Learning Term in the summer may qualify for the summer tuition discount, and can also take a Leave of Absence in the following fall semester in order to apply their financial aid package to the spring. However, in order to enroll in the summer, students must depart before June 15. If a student has any questions about this process, please contact the Department of Global Studies, Sociology, and TESOL.

Program faculty assist students in exploring their major and in designing individualized study and service projects. The GLT is an integral component of the undergraduate global studies major, and builds upon campus-based multidisciplinary coursework, as well as the off-campus Los Angeles Term. It also exists as a stand-alone program for non-global studies students. For additional information, contact the Department of Global Studies, Sociology, and TESOL at (626) 815-6000, Ext. 3844.
