YYGS Program

Yale Young Global Scholars emphasizes an open, exploratory, and collaborative approach to learning. Our program is designed to allow students to experience learning in a variety of different university contexts, from large lectures to small seminars, and even the spontaneous learning that happens in dining halls and around campus.
 
  • With no grades or course credit, YYGS encourages students to approach all aspects of the program creatively and with the understanding that they set their own limits. Students receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the session.
  • The diverse and inclusive community at YYGS enhances learning by inviting students to analyze issues from multiple perspectives. Living and learning alongside peers from around the world allows students to broaden their own world views by learning about countries and cultures they have never encountered before.
  • Living in Yale’s residential college gives students a taste of life at Yale University. Students are able to explore Yale’s campus and the surrounding area in their down time.*
* Participants attending the ATC session will have the opportunity to explore Yale’s state of the art center in Beijing, China.
