Graduation Survey & Post Study Abroad Assessment

All Global Studies degree and minor students are required to complete an assessment assignment and a graduation survey upon completion of their required coursework. This assessment process allows Global Studies students to reflect on their experience while providing important information to help improve the program.

The graduation survey is conducted online for a limited period of time during the fall, spring, and summer terms. Students who are about to complete or who have finished all coursework and need to take the survey should contact Christine Wolf (cawolf@uwm.edu).
