Dickinson College has operated its own global study and research centers since 1965. These centers immerse students in the study of foreign language and foster a deeper understanding of the political, social, cultural and economic histories of the countries and regions where they are located. They form a worldwide network of living laboratories from which students can trace the causes and consequences of global forces, examine differing policy responses to global change and assess and learn from successes and failures.
The Dickinson difference offers 50+ years of global programming internships and guided research opportunities while Dickinson staff and faculty provide local comprehensive onsite academic, intercultural and administrative support.
THE DICKINSON EXPERIENCE
Commitment to building resilience, intercultural learning and intensive immersion
A student-centered liberal-arts education in a dynamic global setting
Programs offer the opportunity to do intensive language study and integrate into a local university
“ My perception became more nuanced— France and the French included so much more than simply learning the language and going to class. It was an experience to live and to study and to work in France, and each aspect made my experience one of the best periods of my life.”
—Dickinson program participant
GLOBAL PROGRAMS AVAILABLE TO NON-DICKINSON STUDENTS
HAVE THE COURAGE TO CHALLENGE YOUR WORLDVIEW
“My year in Bremen was challenging, but entirely rewarding and worthwhile. Taking classes at the university in Bremen showed me a new side of higher education, improved my language and communication skills as well as my confidence. Living in a city was also a new and exciting opportunity.”
—Phoebe Allebach ’17 (German)
