Study Abroad

Globally Engaged Citizens

Guilford College believes in the value of study abroad experiences during which an international location becomes a hands-on learning laboratory for deep academic and cultural exploration. With one of the most creative and immersive programs in the country, the study abroad program at Guilford College is something we encourage every student to do.

Living in a 12th-century castle in Brunnenburg, staying with students from several other foreign countries in South Africa, or doing marine research off the Austrailian coasts — study abroad is so much more than just taking classes in another country. Graduate schools and employers increasingly seek candidates with international experiences and abilities tailored to our global community — this includes an understanding of languages, cultures, foreign policies and global trends.

The Guilford College Study Abroad Office works to prepare students to be engaged global citizens that embody a unique set of skills and abilities, making them successful members in the globalized and technological society of the 21st century.
