The Levermore Global Scholar curriculum is designed to explore new ideas and areas of study, while satisfying part of
Adelphi's general education requirements. Entering students register for a Levermore-specific
first-year seminar, orientation, and freshman writing class. In their second semester, they register
for another writing course that emphasizes global perspectives. Sophomores take specially
designed global problems courses during both semesters.
In their junior year, LGS students meet together in small, discussion-based and writing intensive
LGS seminars designed to explore the connection between academic learning and civic
engagement. These interdisciplinary seminars examine contemporary political, social, economic,
and cultural issues from a global perspective with an opportunity to embark on a number of
hands-on, community action projects.
In their senior year, the LGS students participate in a LGS Senior Project seminar, where they
engage in projects that integrate their LGS study with disciplinary knowledge in their major.
