Your professors lead Travel Study courses held around the world, providing guided, educational, and inspiring experiences. Our diverse student body, cultural and political student organizations, visiting international guests, and community outreach bring a global society into your college experience.

Where it can take you: Graduates with an international perspective on business, law, and culture can create their own future in the global marketplace.
