Study Abroad — Psychology

WHY STUDY ABROAD? Living and studying in another country will make you a more culturally aware citizen, and an internationally engaged and cross-culturally sensitive professional. At both of Champlain's international academic centers, you have the ability to participate in a field-based internship or student placement. The staff and faculty at both international campuses will work with you to find a student placement that fits around your academic schedule, giving you a unique multi-cultural experience with non-profits and school systems abroad.
