Is Our New Degree in Global Citizenship Right For You?

Posted by Sandy Lashin-Curewitz | November 07, 2014

Many students come to Becker to learn how to lead in a global economy. For them, servicing the greater good is always top of mind. They’re interested in social justice and human rights, and they’re always looking for community service opportunities. (Fun fact: Becker students perform nearly 80,000 hours of community service every year.)

And all of us here at Becker, in turn, want our graduates to not only live in the world, but to also make it a better place in any way they can. That’s why we now offer a Bachelor of Arts in Global Citizenship, a degree that is the first of its kind in the U.S. and one that we’re extremely excited about. Think it might be the right degree for you?
