WHY should students be BSOS Global Scholars?

Twenty-first century graduates should be able to connect with people in Beijing or Istanbul as well as those in Annapolis or Washington. They need to be able to relate to, and learn from, people of various ethnicities here or abroad who may understand little English. BSOS Global Scholars candidates have face-to-face interaction with those of diverse backgrounds. Scholars will improve their public speaking, leadership and cross-cultural communication skills. Living, working and studying in different cultures helps students increase understanding of the human condition and generate new ideas to solve global and domestic issues.
