Perception of Global Citizenship among International Participants of Study Abroad Programs
Study abroad programs significantly impact their participants’ level of knowledge, personal qualities, and future prospects. One of the essential promises of participation in study abroad programs is the promise of becoming a global citizen. The purpose of this study was to determine whether and to what extent a short-term study abroad program impacts the development of global identity and global citizenship among international students of a US university. The study demonstrated that although participants’ responses were to some degree consistent with the transformationalist global citizen perspective, their vision of global citizenship lacked such important elements as the understanding and acceptance of changes in the global-national-local hierarchy or an intent to participate in globally important actions.
