Students in the College have the opportunity to enrich their academic experience with a number of global opportunities. This can include participating in a semester or year-long study abroad program, enrolling in a Penn Global Seminar, or interning with a company or organization in another country. We encourage students to think about the ways in which these global experiences can have a powerful and lasting impact on their time at Penn and beyond. For example, many students take coursework that integrates into their major, provides them with an opportunity to continue their study of a language, or allows them to learn more about other cultures both in and outside of the classroom.
Depending on their academic interests and goals, some students may need to take language courses or other relevant coursework to prepare for a study abroad experience. Major advisors and the College advisor assigned to their region of interest will review these course requirements and help each student determine how courses taken abroad will fit into their academic career.
