The world is ever-more interconnected — economics, science, the arts, and politics ensure that humans all over the globe come in close contact on a daily basis. You’ll spend lots of time examining these global intersections and their implications in your classes, but there’s no better way to really get a big-picture view than by spending some time in another country. We encourage you to take advantage of the range of Study Abroad options that are available to you.
International Student Exchange program
Castleton is now a member of the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP), which allows you to spend a semester or academic year studying abroad for the cost of Castleton tuition, room and board, plus travel and administrative fees. You can learn more about this exciting addition to Castleton’s study-away opportunities by contacting Kathleen Mason or the ISEP website.
If you are unable to find a program through ISEP then Castleton students can also work with a number of international study organizations, including AIFS, CIS, API and Globalinks to identify the program and location that fit. Recently, students have spent a semester or a year in Spain, England, South Africa, Ecuador, Australia, Edinburgh, Ireland, and Italy. Students can also participate in Education First’s language-immersion programs during semester and summer breaks in locations like France, Spain, Costa Rica, Italy, Germany, China, and Japan.
In addition to using an education abroad organization, another option for study abroad is to enroll at one of Castleton University’s partner institutions for either one term or an academic year. Castleton cooperates with a number of universities around the world to promote the international exchange of students between our schools.
