A big wide, world of opportunities

Being a Monmouth student means that literally a world of opportunities is opened to you. Opportunities include spending a semester conducting research in one of the nation’s most prestigious laboratories, learning about the culture of the Yucat√°n Peninsula, studying in Scotland, and getting an inside view of how the federal government works.

Our international and domestic global engagement opportunities are the perfect complement to your field of study – they also open you to new possibilities. Programs give students an opportunity to explore different perspectives of the human condition in a global community in a setting that is intellectually challenging and aesthetically inspiring.

Getting there

Pay the same to study abroad

While some global programs require proficiency in a language other than English, most do not. Most full-semester or year-long programs cost about the same as on-campus study, except for travel expenses and incidentals. Students may use their Monmouth financial aid for approved programs. Travel grants are often available to help offset the cost of short-term trips.

Global programs are open to sophomores, juniors and seniors who are in good academic standing and approved by the dean of students.

Program deadlines

Before applying, students should talk with their advisor about the goals of the program and then set up an appointment with the Office of Global Engagement to discuss the details of that program.

All programs require an application and some paperwork in advance of your trip.
