Intercultural Competence Certification

Ohio State is committed to advancing Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) opportunities for students and faculty to ensure transformative intercultural experiences.

The Intercultural Competence for Global Citizenship certificate provides a pathway for students to engage in deep inquiry and develop intercultural competence through experiential learning. Undergraduate students who take COIL courses through general education or their majors can apply for the Intercultural Competence certificate. Students are required to complete a specific set of courses as well as participate in global learning experiences, which provide real-world intercultural interactions and reflection opportunities.
