Many departments have special topic numbers. All special topics classes require approval from Director of Undergraduate Studies in order to receive GLBL creditDo not assume you will receive GLBL credit for taking a special topics class if you have not petitioned the Global Studies office. Petitions will no longer be accepted via e-mail and must be submitted through our new Course Credit Request SystemThis system also serves students seeking to request any other type of UNC course to count towards the GLBL major.
