Tiger Tracks: Study Abroad

A collaboration between GC Academic Success & the Ensor LRC.

Make study abroad part of your 4-year plan. 

Study overseas for a few weeks during Winter or May Term, for a month during Summer, or for a semester!  This will be one of the best things you do while you are a Georgetown student.  We have several programs taught by Georgetown professors, and we work with several consortiums with many options to choose from.  Courses can fulfill major/minor requirements, General Education requirements, and credits toward graduation!  It is not necessary to speak the language of the country you visit—although it certainly helps!

Study Abroad Programs

The Cooperative Center for Study Abroad offers study abroad programs in English-speaking countries. Study in Australia, Ireland, Scotland, or the UK!  Take art and design in London or animal behavior in Australia!  Visit http://ccsa.cc or contact Dr. Rick Kopp (rick_kopp@georgetowncollege.edu) for more information.

 

 

The Kentucky Institute for International Studies takes students to countries around the world.  Many students go to perfect their language skills, but students do not need to know the language of the host site in order to study there!  For instance, study music in Salzburg, Public Health in Tanzania, or Education in Costa Rica!  Visit http://kiis.org or contact  Dr. Laura Hunt (laura_hunt@georgetowncollege.edu) for more information.

 

There are many other options for study abroad consortiums – these are just a few that our professors have worked closely with.  Other great options include the American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS), International Studies Abroad (ISA), and Sol Education Abroad.  There are also internship opportunities abroad through many of these same associations.

 

Why Study Abroad?

  • College credit!  Study abroad during Winter or Summer is a great way to get ahead on credit hours if you know you want to graduate early or have a lot of requirements to complete during your college career.
  • This is the best kind of class you can take.  Why not study a language where it’s spoken every day?  Why not learn about political science in China? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to study photography in Ireland?
  • Because NOT studying abroad is a number one regret of college graduates!

Next Steps

  • Watch for study abroad fairs and information sessions hosted on campus.  These events are a great way to get information about what your options are.
  • Visit our study abroad page, which has a lot of great information about planning to study abroad. 
  • Once you are on campus, visit the portal study abroad page, which has many resources on additional study abroad options, scholarships, and the paperwork you will need to complete before going abroad.  Important deadlines will also be listed there.
  • As you get serious about going abroad, make an appointment with Dr. Laura Hunt, Faculty Director of Study Abroad.  She can help you to find a program that’s right for you!
