Join the Global Option

CFAES has a new transcript designation available to recognize student efforts to internationalize their OSU experience. This new designation is called the Global Option (GO).

The CFAES GO has four basic components:

  • Education Abroad or International Student Status
  • Taking a course related to your major or minor (see list) that is international in nature
  • Advanced international learning: A second study abroad,¬†or the second set of 3 credit hours for a program that awards 6+ hours, or participate in an international research project, internship or Service Learning experience, or minor in a program that is international in nature, or prove at least minor-level proficiency in a non-English language
  • Complete the Global Option Capstone course (FAES 4580) at some point after reaching rank 4 (exceptions allowed for special circumstances such as Agriscience Ed students who are not able to take any additional courses their final year)
