Georgia State University, a Carnegie Doctoral/Research Extensive university and the Southeast’s leading urban research institution, is searching for a Founding Director of a new Global Studies Institute in the College of Arts and Sciences.  Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.


Attention tenured and tenure-track faculty in the College of Arts & Sciences!  The college is announcing a second call for proposals of its Developing External Educational Partnerships (DEEP) initiative.  We will accept proposals to develop sustainable linkages between Georgia State and universities in the five targeted countries (S. Korea, Turkey, South Africa, Brazil and China). With this investment the college expects to create opportunities for research collaborations, faculty and student exchanges, joint conferences and workshops.  Proposals are due March 24, 2014, to Ashley Mastin.  Recipients will be notified by April 11, 2014, and awarded funding should be used between July 1, 2014 and June 1, 2015.  Please see the call for proposals for more details.



The College of Arts & Sciences encourages and welcomes the international engagement of our students and faculty.  Scroll down to see all programs the college has to offer all students at Georgia State University!  The name of each program links to its application, and the name associated with each program is its director, who you can email for more details.

There are two types of international experiences to enhance your time at Georgia State.  Faculty-led summer programs are short-term, usually offered in the Maymester and Summer sessions.  GSU faculty members design and lead the program, and GSU students travel, take classes, and go on cultural excursions together.  Exchange programs allow students to spend a semester or academic year at a partner university abroad.  Students travel on their own, take classes with local students, and experience life in another country.  GSU program directors assist students with preparations, but exchange students are expected to be much more independent.

Financial aid and scholarships can be used to pay for official GSU faculty-led summer programs and exchange programs.  Though classes are taken abroad, students earn resident credit.  Please see the list of international programs offered to students by the College of Arts & Sciences below.
