Georgetown College Students Provided a Wide Range of Study Abroad Options

Submitted on September 30, 2019

Georgetown College boasts many programs to broaden the horizons of its students, a key component being the wide array of study abroad options available. These programs allow students to experience diverse cultures while earning academic credit.

More than thirty countries on six continents are included, with programs spread throughout the year lasting from a few weeks during summer or winter breaks to an entire academic semester or year.

Classes are offered in almost all academic areas, allowing for numerous majors to be supported making study abroad possible for all students.

Associate Dean for Academic Services & Registrar Jason Snider said,  “GC students are able to study abroad and earn academic credit in nearly any part of the world via our own programs, study abroad partners, and study abroad consortia. Recent students have studied medical Spanish in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Environmental Science in Costa Rica. Our goal is to craft the perfect study abroad experience that meets a student’s academic, personal, and financial goals.”

Some programs focus on immersion, allowing students to learn the local language firsthand, but knowing a foreign language is certainly not required. Many programs offer classes taught in English even in non-English speaking countries.

Destinations include Paris, Italy, Spain, Mexico, and even the prestigious Oxford University, where Georgetown College students are well equipped to excel.

While there is no specific class requirement for studying abroad, many students choose to travel during their sophomore or junior year, after they have settled in and chosen their desired program while also allowing adequate time before graduation. Many programs require registration far in advance, so it is never too early to start planning.

The broad range of destinations, classes offered, and timing ensure study abroad makes sense for all students.
