Why should you participate in a global experience?
Studying abroad has many benefits including the ability to travel, learn a new language and enhance resumes and professional opportunities. But the benefits extend beyond the obvious. Students who explore life outside of the country say time and again that the experience changed their lives; they grew personally and by learning more about other cultures, came to better appreciate their own.
Lycoming College encourages students to participate in a study abroad program, with opportunities ranging from May Terms (a unique offering at Lycoming) and summer sessions to a full semester or academic year overseas. Students who intend to study abroad must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.50 or higher. All overseas programs require prior approval from the students' major departments, the acting coordinator of global education courses, the dean of students and the registrar.
