Study Abroad and Development of Global Citizen Identity and Cosmopolitan Ideals in Undergraduates
Hendershot, Karen; Sperandio, Jill
Current Issues in Comparative Education, v12 n1 p45-55 2009
This paper reports selected results from a broader study which focused on determining students' perceptions of the development of their global citizen identity within the context of an undergraduate global citizenship program, and what students believed were aspects of the program that contributed to this growth. Findings suggest that experiences with other cultures and places gained through program-organized study abroad were perceived as being the most important element in developing students' global citizen identities and practice of cosmopolitan ideals.
