Global education isn't just about seeing the world or learning a new language, it is also about growth: You will sharpen your intellectual, linguistic, and cultural skills to expand your worldview. Learning through study abroad and travel courses also includes accepting challenges, negotiating differences, embracing flexibility, and gaining confidence — a growth that will distinguish you in the eyes of prospective employers and graduate schools.
Through the CEAE’s Office of Global Education, traditional classroom boundaries are expanded to encourage global citizenship. A wide array of opportunities are designed to complement your Lycoming experience, including independent study abroad programs, faculty-led travel courses, archaeological dig sites, and the Warrior Coffee service learning project in the Dominican Republic. In addition, Lycoming’s language immersion programs focus on full linguistic and cultural engagement with opportunities to study in Belgium, Costa Rica, Ecuador, France, Germany, Mexico, and Spain.
Merit- and need-based scholarships are available to students who meet eligibility requirements, and many federal grants and loans may also be an option to fund your global education experience. Contact Allison Holladay at firstname.lastname@example.org in the Office of Global Education for more information.
The value of a liberal arts education supplemented with global education is evident. You will return to campus a changed scholar — more compassionate, more willing to look at the world from different perspectives, and more confident in your scholarly and career pursuits.
