Study Abroad

Students who take advantage of short-term study abroad courses with the Carter School will earn credit toward their degrees while applying their foundational knowledge and emerging conflict analysis and resolution skills to international contexts.

There are over 200 options to choose from, including but not limited to Carter School-led trips and internship abroad opportunities, so you are sure to find an experience that fits your interests. Make sure to reach out to your Academic Advisor and start planning early if you are interested in studying abroad. 

Designed to fit into the busy schedules of both full-time students and working professionals, these programs take place over the spring, winter, and summer breaks. During these courses, students work closely with faculty in the field to connect with communities and organizations that are working to address conflict.
