Ready for the World

Honors students are quick to understand that international and intercultural learning is now vital to their effectiveness in virtually every field.  Not only is the marketplace globalized, scholarly research is often done by teams whose members may be at institutions anywhere in the world. At UT Knoxville, we recognize that the ability to work easily within different cultures is one of the great advantages we can offer all our students, especially those who are seeking the highest-quality undergraduate experience.  All Chancellor’s Honors student complete a Ready for the World requirement.  Students can meet this requirement through study abroad, domestic or international service projects, majoring or minoring in a foreign language, or any other approved activity.

For Summer 2014, the CHP is sponsoring UT faculty led trips. Students can satisfy their Ready for the World requirement and earn honors course credits. Note that applications may not become available until late Fall, early Spring and the Programs Abroad website pages might not be updated until then.
