Ms. Bennellick said, “It is no longer sufficient for college graduates to be prepared to live and work only among Americans in the United States, even though it is a complex society that blends many cultures. Today’s graduates must be prepared to work with and compete with colleagues from around the globe and potentially to spend some portion of their careers living outside the United States. Studying abroad is not simply just a part of a well-rounded education. Instead, study abroad begins the training process outside of the classroom and the development of skills that are increasingly important for success in the modern global economy.”
Saint Vincent College’s Study Abroad Program provides an opportunity for all students to enroll in well-designed academic programs sponsored by recognized colleges and universities throughout the world.
