Because understanding a little bit more about the world can take you further, literally and figuratively! ID graduates have benefited both personally and professionally from the degree.
International Degree graduates can demonstrate:
- Advanced proficiency in second language
- Intercultural communication skills and knowledge
- In depth understanding of the international context of their chosen field
- Superior research and writing skills
They know their way around the library, but are just as comfortable wandering the streets of Paris or Beijing! They have friends all over the world and love to hang out with the international students here in Corvallis. They develop significant relationships with faculty members here at OSU and abroad. They learn to dive in the Galapagos, job shadow doctors in Tunisia, climb mountains in the Andes, walk the Great Wall of China, work with at-risk youth in Chile, analyze biofuels in Spain, or go to music festivals in Costa Rica!
In short, International Degree students want to know the world, and take steps to do just that. They reap the benefits of the degree in graduate and professional schools, as well as in careers in Oregon, the US, and the world!
