Global Mosaics

Global Mosaics are intensive, interdisciplinary research programs designed around ethnographic fieldwork and immersion in domestic and global communities. Their objective is to encourage students to think reflectively about the diverse world in which they live as they engage in collaborative work with local, transnational and international communities. Global Mosaics provide opportunities for students to apply what they are learning in the classroom—both theoretically and methodologically—to the world beyond and to bring their experiences in the world back into the classroom.

The following is a list of current/upcoming Mosaics:

Mosaics are being developed on a continuous basis. For more information, please visit the Mosaics program page.  

Globally Integrated Courses

Globally Integrated Courses link the study of a global theme or issue in a semester-long course with the opportunity to build on and deepen understanding of the issues through fieldwork or research at a global center or site. Globally Integrated Semesters include additional globally-themed workshops throughout the semester.

Global Scholars 

The Global Scholars program is an initiative to promote student scholarship at our partner institutions abroad. This program allows select Dickinson students to join a faculty-led student research team to study issues of global significance while participating on a Dickinson study abroad program. 

Past Global Scholar Programs include: 

  • Global Scholars US-Japan

Dickinson, in partnership with Akita International University and co-funded by a grant from the Japanese government, is undertook an in-depth research project on perceptions of quality of life among older adults, particularly the relationship between perceived well-being and access to/utilization of health care services. The research was conducted in two structurally similar but geographically distinct regions: Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, and Akita City, Japan.
