Study Abroad/Global Studies

Going to college - whether in your hometown or far from home - is truly a broadening experience. Deciding on an arts and sciences education further expands your horizons.

But if you want to go further, study abroad. Study Abroad offers you the opportunity to see and experience other customs and cultures; brings to life all of those places and people you read about in your courses; gives you a chance to sharpen your language and communication skills and prepare you to become a member of the global community. You get all this plus academic credits that may apply toward your graduation requirements.

And don't think Study Abroad is beyond your pocketbook. It's more affordable than you think. There are lots of inexpensive programs and courses, as well as financial awards and aid to help you pay for it.

Students participate in a wide variety of study/travel opportunities. Ranging from short week-long art or culture tours to semester-long adventures. Students have the opportunity to enhance their Arts and Sciences' education with a study tour in all of our programs. In addition to the numerous opportunities to travel with student groups, each year dozens of McMicken students pursue individual programs of study abroad with a minimum duration of one semester. Last year we had 33 students from 12 majors participate in such programs in 6 countries (Mexico, Spain, Germany, France, Czech Republic, and Japan).
