- St. Augustine of Hippo

Studying abroad is one of the most exciting and fulfilling parts of a university education – just ask anyone who has done it! They will tell you it was a positive, life-changing experience. Not only will you gain global experience and confidence, you’ll stand out from the crowd in your career/graduate school search!

Georgetown College students may spend anywhere from two weeks to a full academic year abroad in nearly any part of the world.

Why study abroad?

Studying abroad is one of the best university experiences you can have – just ask anyone who has done it! Typical reasons GC students study abroad:

  • Global experience is in high demand - employers and graduate schools want global applicants
  • Explore new academic interests - perhaps you want to explore an area GC does not offer
  • Find your place in the world - time abroad  leads to self discovery and a new sense of independence
  • Learn about another culture - study abroad is the perfect time to explore what the world has to offer
