Honors Global Communities (HGC) offers students the opportunity to adopt a global framework of understanding and to think deeply across contemporary global affairs and issues through the dual lenses of social science and data science. HGLO empowers students to understand and engage major global challenges through an approach integrating multiple social science fields and analytical methods, and also to develop an ethics of global accountability, interrelation, and social justice. In addition to specialized courses conducted in close contact with distinguished faculty, HGC students pursue original research on specific global topics as well as internship and study abroad experiences connected with global public service and unique opportunities of the nation's capital area.
