Global Engagement

Study the world. See the world. Change the world. 

Study abroad? Pack your bags. 

Short-term trip, long-lasting memories

Totally want to study abroad, but maybe not for a whole semester? No problem. You can still get the study abroad experience without messing up your academic plan or missing any athletics. Our two-week, mini-semester, Scots Term programs, developed and run by Monmouth faculty, offer a diverse range of courses at various global locations.

Past courses, which are usually offered in January and May, have included studying the wine industry of Australia, the biodiversity of Belize and Guatemala, “Literary Scotland” and post-apartheid South Africa.

 Your passport? Yea, it’s on us. 

Our students can unlock access to more than 198 countries with a passport paid for by the College.  Apply for your passport  as recommended by the State Department guidelines.  We will reimburse the normal processing, application and photo costs.  If you need assistance or have questions we are here to help!

Study abroad, but, like, make it close 

You don’t have to go to a different country to experience something new. Our students have the option to study domestically in places such as Washington D.C. Students also have the opportunity to study, serve and intern in cities from coast to coast right here in the United States.
