Global Study and Engagement

Dickinson has been educating and inspiring global leaders since 1783. 

OUR APPROACH INFUSES INTERCULTURAL AND GLOBAL EXPERIENCES AND LEARNING INTO EVERY CORNER OF CAMPUS, AND WE EXTEND THOSE ELEMENTS INTO OUR 18 DICKINSON-IN PROGRAMS ABROAD

Dickinson offers semester and year-long study abroad options in over 20 countries, including 18 Dickinson-run global programs and over 30 partner programs. Students also participate in short-term, faculty-led programs such as summer programs or Global Mosaics and Globally Integrated which are connected to semester long courses. With Dickinson students representing 49 foreign countries and international students making up 14% of the student body, it is common to hear multiple languages spoken around campus. Our globally-focused curriculum is enhanced outside the classroom with the presence of numerous international clubs and organizations infusing a global perspective into everything we do and throughout our community.  Dickinson is committed to building an inclusive, equitable and sustainable community.
