Study Abroad In Social Work — Social Work

WHY STUDY ABROAD? Living and studying in another country will make you a more culturally aware citizen, and an internationally engaged professional. At both of Champlain's international academic centers, you have the opportunity to participate in a field-based internship at a school or non-profit organization. The staff and faculty at both international campuses will work with you to find an internship or placement, giving you a unique multicultural experience with school systems or community organizations abroad.

Explore the Global Marketplace

"Global Appreciation" has emerged as an essential competency employers seek. Champlain has taken a proactive approach to cultivating this competency by ensuring that international learning is embedded in the College's curriculum.

Additionally, Champlain offers opportunities for every student to engage in a study-abroad experience. To that end, we designed the curriculum of our majors to support a semester of international study. What does this mean to you? You can study in another country, even complete an internship, and still graduate on time.

Living and studying in another country will make you a more culturally aware citizen, and an internationally engaged and cross-culturally sensitive professional.
