Undergraduate Research

The Department of Global Studies works with the Language Resource Center to produce the PantherPlanet Podcast with funding from a U.S. Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center grant. Both undergraduate and graduate students can apply to be a podcast intern to research and produce episodes.

Resources for Teachers

We disseminate our research in many ways, directed toward multiple audiences, but we are always pleased to be able to share our research through pedagogical tools, presentations, and organizations that help other educators to develop and expand their curriculum on global topics and world languages.
