International Activities

To complete your certificate, you will need to attend at least two activities with an international focus after you have returned to the U.S. These co-curricular activities may include lecturesperformancesworkshopsvolunteer work, or conferences. You may hear of others from professors, friends, and organizations located both on and off campus. When you attend an activity, keep in mind that you will be writing a reflective essay placing your responses to the activity within the context of the other experiences you have gained while earning the Certificate of Global Studies (including education abroad, language learning, and coursework). You may decide to take notes to this effect during the event. See this link for more info on the reflective essays; please review this info before attending the event.

This page will be updated regularly with events that are already approved for the Certificate of Global Studies. If you'd like to find out if another activity qualifies, please contact the Director of Global Studies, Dr. Julie Human (julie.human@uky.edu), prior to attending. In your email, provide the date, time, location, presenter name, title of presentation, and if possible, a web link to more information so the activity can be added to the list below. 

If you need information about a past event (as you are writing an essay, for example), consult the calendar archive.

All events listed below have free admission, unless specified otherwise.

Please note: due to COVID-19 cancellations, you may now watch any foreign film and use it as your international activity for one essay.
