The Cross-Cultural and International Education program at Bowling Green State University offers students rigorous coursework with opportunities for collaborative, community service. We prepare our graduates to be effective leaders in cross-cultural and international education arenas. With a core curriculum in educational foundations, research methods, and a minor outside of Education, our students examine education issues from diverse perspectives in international, transnational, and global contexts.
The program connects cultural and international understanding with educational theory and practice through a unique combination of courses from several disciplines at BGSU. Students construct the academic basis for their program from select courses in the College of Education and Human Development and other colleges on campus. The students then apply this academic foundation to a practical cross-cultural/ international internship experience.
Students have participated in a variety of internships in formal and non-formal settings, including international sites in China, South Africa, Vietnam, Chile, Costa Rica, New Zealand, and Belize, and domestically with Yup'ik students in Alaska, refugee organizations in Colorado, Washington and Texas, and Mexican migrant populations in Ohio, Michigan Washington and other states. Students complete the MACIE program with comprehensive examinations or a master’s thesis.
The University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association.
