Impact of Global Curricular Experiences on Student GPA
Saffo, George N
Study abroad, foreign exchange, foreign language, and global understanding courses are encouraged within higher education as something that can greatly improve and diversify student’s college experiences. However, much of the data on benefits of these activities are limited and the findings are not entirely consistent throughout the literature. In this study, we use a simple fixed effects model within a sample of 47,000 students to understand the impacts that study abroad, foreign exchange, global understanding, and foreign language courses have on student semester and cumulative GPA’s. Based on our model, it was found that study abroad/foreign exchange and global understanding courses had positive impacts on student success while the results for foreign language courses were not statistically significant.
