Center for Global and Career Education

What We Do

The Center for Global and Career Education (CGCE) empowers you to pursue richly rewarding professional lives aligned with your strengths, interests and passions in the context of a critically informed global consciousness.

We pride ourselves on our student-centered environment, aiming to ensure that you have the necessary resources, support and opportunities to thrive in the global realities of the 21st century. We facilitate experiential and exploratory learning that enhances your personal and professional development.

Your EPIC Journey Begins at the CGCE!

The Earlham Program for an Integrated Curriculum (or EPIC) is a four-year journey through the liberal arts that integrates the academic major with transformative learning experiences to prepare students exceptionally well for life beyond Earlham.

These journeys include variable combinations of research, off-campus study, internships and leadership development. Your individualized version is your EPIC journey.

The EPIC Advantage program provides funding for you to engage in one internship, project or research experience, whether in a U.S. setting or abroad. Earlham offers this unique advantage for every student!

Career Education

At Earlham, Career Education is about more than finding a job — it’s about becoming a socially responsible change-maker in a global economy. Through coaching, networking, and real-world experiences, we aim to help students and alumni identify, pursue, and develop meaningful careers, both in college and beyond. We also encourage you to log into your Handshake profile and join one or more Career Communities by taking the Career Interest Survey.

Where can your EPIC journey take you?

Online Tools

Through Handshake, you can connect with Testing & Education resources, What Can I Do With This Major information, and the GoinGlobal website.

English Language Learners

Earlhamites come from many different linguistic and cultural backgrounds. Many of us are "multilingual," which means that we grew up speaking a language other than or in addition to English. Our English Language Learners (ELL) program provides ELL courses at Earlham as well as individualized advising and support. The ELL program supports both international and U.S. multilingual students.

International Student Services

International Student Services (ISS) ensures that international students find support for the unique challenges that you face when you come to the U.S. to study. We provide personalized immigration advising, academic advising and mentorship for international students at Earlham College. Our advisers work closely with you to help make your EPIC journey at Earlham rewarding and successful. All Earlham centers, offices and departments also serve you, but this team specializes in helping you with the specific aspects of the international student experience.

Internships

The Internships Programs cultivate a culture of discovery that helps students thrive as well-rounded, thoughtful, and compassionate leaders who are intent on improving the world. Integral to that culture of discovery is the concept of experiential education — education that moves outside the walls of the classroom and involves students in real-world experiences and problem-solving.

Off-Campus Study

Off-Campus Study programs are designed to help you gain a new perspective on your academic, personal and professional interests. Studying abroad or in an off-campus U.S. setting provides unique insights into your career pathways and unusually powerful personal development. It also helps you prepare yourself to thrive in an increasingly integrated world community that requires the kinds of global competencies that off-campus study develops.

Student Employment

On-campus student employment is a source of financial support for many students, but at Earlham, you will also benefit from an intentional approach that allows for career discernment and professional skills development. More than just a “work study” program, Earlham student employment is your in-college engagement with career development and an integrated part of your EPIC journey.
