Center for Global Engagement: Opening Doors to New Places.

Study Liberal Arts Abroad

"Travel encourages us to step outside ourselves into rich arenas of history, art, and the imagination. Meaningful encounter with other cultures enables our capacity to creatively and confidently engage the world. Experience a country's food, art, life, and land, while studying new surroundings, wandering new spaces, and meeting new people. Open your mind and heart to pursue values central to the liberal arts that enhance compassion and knowledge through exploring different cultures and coming to know yourself as a citizen of the world."
Dr. Linda Kinnahan, Professor and Hillman Endowed Chair, McAnulty College and Graduate School of Liberal Arts, Department of English
