Global Perspectives

Global Perspectives: Studying abroad allows students to immerse themselves in a new country and culture. Throughout the experience, students will learn about their program's academic focus, about themselves, build confidence in their abilities, and most importantly expand world-views to better understand other cultures.

We want to enable students to understand the links between their own lives and those of people throughout the world, increase understanding of economic, social, and political forces that help shape life, develop skills, attitudes and values to enable people working together to bring about change for a common good, and to think with complexity taking into account multiple perspectives while relating to others with respect and openness.
