Services and Programs /
We live in a global society. It’s a phrase we hear almost every day, and it gets a little bit truer every year. Our economies, educational systems and human service efforts constantly develop new and far-reaching interconnections. So it becomes increasingly important for us to be globally educated citizens. To reach beyond the boundaries of our own backyard and experience life and education in a different part of the world. To become professionals whose cultural competency sets them apart from their peers.
Capital’s study abroad offerings have been designed to help you begin your exploration. Depending on your academic goals, you can choose from a wide range of options, including short- and long-term programs. Study abroad is available for every major!If you’re a music major, you may want to take advantage of exchange programs that Capital has developed with institutions offering similar programs in Hungary, Germany. If you’re a nursing major, you could explore our exchange programs in Sweden, Scotland or even Guangxi, China. If you are a social work major, you can complete part of your social work internship in Sweden.As an education major, our Intercultural Student Teaching program gives you the opportunity to complete a portion of your required student-teaching in your choice of 17 countries outside of the United States. Or you may want to check out the wide range of opportunities made possible by organizations that coordinate study abroad programs around the world.
Even if you don’t have an entire semester to devote to international travel, there are opportunities for you to consider. Faculty often lead short overseas trips that relate to specific areas of study. These programs change from year to year, but recent faculty-led travel destinations include Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, Galapagos Islands, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Turkey, Canada and the Bahamas. Now that’s teaching and learning outside of the classroom.It’s a big world out there. Capital can make it seem just a bit smaller.
