Minor in the spotlights: Global Citizenship in Education & Social Work


Global Citizenship refers to the challenge for people, professionals and communities to engage with global issues on a local level and to enable people to work together in a globally connected and intercultural environment.

A global citizen in Education & Social Work has the ability to use knowledge and skills about global citizenship in his/her own profession. The practice-based, multi-disciplinary and intercultural approach of the programme (courses, research and practical activities) will ensure that Global Citizenship will become part of the professional identity of each student. We focus on the local communities and neighbourhoods; because that is where the global meets the local!
