There will be a 15-week global affairs colloquium taught by renowned faculty from across Yale’s undergraduate, graduate and Professional schools. Through exposure to both classical philosophical texts, current academic research and practical thought, the program creates a real-world experience unlike any traditional academic program. Fellows are challenged to test their own boundaries, to think differently about their work to date and to consider new and potentially multi-disciplinary directions. 

UP-CLOSE LEADERSHIP CONVERSATIONS

Fellows hear the personal side of professional trajectories and have the opportunity to ask hard questions to some of the world’s most gifted practitioners.

Get to meet the world leaders: The World Fellows have hosted leaders ranging from former Secretary-General of the United Nations Kofi Annan; former heads of state Ernesto Zedillo and Tony Blair; U.S. Supreme Court Justices Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg; and award-winning writers Elizabeth Alexander and David Brooks.  

SELF-DIRECTED STUDY

Fellows can audit almost any of the 2,000+ courses offered at Yale University with the opportunity to develop or continue work on individual or collaborative research projects. They also spend time building relationships with Yale faculty and students, giving talks and lectures and engaging in informal dialog and debate. Many get involved with Yale and local community organizations, providing a valuable exchange of ideas.
