The Center for Global Education promotes internationalization at Tulane, supports international students and scholars, and develops opportunities for Tulanians to have intercultural experiences around the world and right here in New Orleans.
Tulane welcomes approximately 400 international undergraduate students from over 50 countries, both as full-time degree-seeking students and visiting exchange students. Over 600 Tulane students study abroad each year for a summer, semester or entire academic year through programs sponsored by the Office of Study Abroad, the Freeman School of Business, and other internationally-engaged units on campus like the Stone Center for Latin American Studies and the Center for Public Service. When they return, these students are strong advocates for international education and contributors to programs such as International Education Week, the International Food and Music Festival, and our weekly Global Café.
Tulane undergraduates can also engage with the global on campus by studying one of thirteen foreign languages, taking an ESL teaching methods course with our Teacher Preparation and Certification Program, pursuing courses within one of our five area and cultural studies programs (Africana Studies, Asian Studies, Germanic and Slavic Studies, Jewish Studies and Latin American Studies), or combining business and international study in the Altman Program in International Business. Courses with an international perspective can also be found within a variety of departments and programs from Anthropology to History, Political Science, and Urban Studies.
