Real World Experience

Study Abroad

The History and Philosophy Department organizes the Summer Study Abroad Program in China, which is a credit-bearing course. The

four-week program of study and travel, currently based at the Central Nationalities University in the Chinese capital, Beijing, is ideally suited for students pursuing an East Asian focus within the Comparative Humanities degree, as well as for candidates in other areas of Arts and Sciences, Education, and Business.  There are opportunities for study and travel in other areas within Asia as well as Europe, Puerto Rico and South Africa.  For complete information about the Study Abroad opportunities available to students of the college, click here.




Internships place students in legal, cultural and publishing venues under the supervision of professionals, making it one of the best preparations for law, business, and other professions.  Students may also have opportunities to earn course credit as peer mentors and as peer tutors.
