Penn Global Seminars

Announcing the 2020-2021 Penn Global Seminars

January 22, 2020
By Penn Abroad

Penn Global Seminars (PGS) are semester-long courses taught on campus that include an embedded travel component. Through PGS, Penn undergraduate students are able to take full advantage of essential global learning opportunities regardless of their class year or major. The 2020-2021 academic year course offerings represent a massive expansion of the PGS program, offering even more opportunities for Penn students to participate in a global experience during their undergraduate career.

Highlights of next year’s seminars include:

  • An increase to 20 courses over the 2020-2021 academic year
  • New program sites, including Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Madagascar, and Egypt
  • Courses offered in a diverse array of disciplines, including nursing, language, anthropology, computer science, and history

Continuing our mission to keep the program cost low and accessible to all students, PGS participants will pay only a $950 flat program fee, which covers all students’ program costs, including round-trip airfare.

Applications for the Fall 2020 semester will open on March 23, 2020. For more information about the program visit the Penn Global Seminars website. We appreciate your help sharing this information with interested students and colleagues.
