FSI Global Opportunities and Enrichment for Students (GOES) helps undergraduate and graduate students go to fascinating destinations for work, research, and enrichment to their on-campus learning about global affairs. The program offers four main faculty-mentored opportunities that enable students to work on campus and abroad on projects with international policy relevance and development implications:
FSI sponsors four Stanford student-led initiatives (SLIs) that support our mission. Our sponsored SLIs are dedicated to promoting international diplomacy and engaging Stanford students in international affairs through partnerships with universities abroad. Each SLI has established partnerships with a certain country or region.
Two of FSI's centers, CDDRL and CISAC, offer an honors program for seniors. Each program seeks a diverse group of undergraduate majors from any department or interdisciplinary program. Students write their senior thesis on a subject with global impact that touches upon democracy, development, and rule of law, or international security.
The Europe Center at FSI offers a minor in Global Studies with a specialization in European Studies. The minor is designed for undergraduate students who have an interdisciplinary interest in the history, culture, politics, societies, and institutions of Europe, past and present. Students will work with their minor advisor to develop their individual programs. The minor is especially well-suited for undergraduates who plan to make Europe-based overseas studies a part of their Stanford experience.
