Admissions representatives will be happy to direct you to the most appropriate person in the Division to answer your question.
We strongly encourage our students in the Division of Education & Human Studies to take a semester of international study for a number of reasons.
These are just a few examples—the personal growth that comes from a semester immersed in another country can't always be quantified.
You have the option to study abroad at one of our Champlain Abroad campuses during your junior year, in either Dublin, Ireland, or Montreal, Canada. At our Dublin campus, all students in the EHS Division take a service learning class, in which they complete a field placement in Irish schools or nonprofit organizations. If you study at the Champlain Abroad Montreal campus, you may be able to participate in a field-based internship. The staff and faculty at both international Champlain campuses will work with you to find a student placement that fits around your academic schedule, giving you a unique multi-cultural perspective into school systems and community agencies abroad.
Alternatively, you can take a semester studying nearly anywhere in the world, including Argentina, China, Italy, New Zealand, and Scotland. Students in the Division of Education & Human Studies have previously studied abroad in Australia, Bolivia, Italy, Nepal, Spain, Thailand, and Wales.
Students in the EHS Division have the opportunity to enroll into a four-week international internship course and are encouraged to be involved with international service through the EHS International Service Travel Voucher program.
Working closely with your Program Director, you will be able to accommodate a semester abroad—which could include an international internship—while satisfying all of the required coursework for your major.
