For more than 50 years, Dickinson College has operated its own global study and research centers. 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
