Distinction in International Perspectives

The Distinction in International Perspectives is a graduation honor designed to promote, acknowledge, and reward individual students’ real, life-changing growth during their studies at Harper College.  A student who earns the Distinction in International Perspectives will meet the following requirements:

    * Grade of C or better in 12 hours of interdisciplinary academic coursework

    * Minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA

    * Complete the Abstract and Prospectus of the project proposal

    * Capstone project

Students are supported through the Prospectus and Capstone activities by the Director of International Education and qualified faculty advisors/ mentors.  The Distinction offers students an opportunity to work closely with Harper faculty and exposes students to different cultures, creating a unique advantage for students’ future employment, scholarship possibilities, and higher education experiences.
