Global Experience

June 12, 2014


Through our consistently top-ranked overseas programs, our students research in dynamic environments, build cultural and linguistic fluency, and prepare for lives as global leaders.

Overseas and Off-Campus Programs

Sixty percent of our students participate in these programs. Seventy percent of the programs go to countries outside of Western Europe, and all of them have profound effects on the lives of our students and alumni. In fact, in a recent survey of alumni from the Classes of 1999 to 2013, 82 percent of alumni who went on an overseas study program said that experience contributed to their career.
