GLOBAL CAMPUS FIRST YEAR STUDIES


The first year at the University of Utah Asia Campus is called Global Campus First Year Studies. First-year students complete a set of foundational courses: A two-semester sequence on the topic of global citizenship; introductory major courses; courses to develop academic writing skills; and also math and science. The second year is focused on coursework for the major. Students will typically spend two semesters, roughly around their third year of studies, at the University of Utah Salt Lake City campus. The fourth year integrates degree coursework with career readiness and preparation.

Upon completion of these first year courses, students receive a Global Citizenship Certificate.
