Nearly 120 Muhlenberg College students studied abroad during the fall 2018 semester, including Darcy Furlong, Class of 2020, from Oswego, who studied in Italy.
Muhlenberg College encourages students in all disciplines to study overseas at quality institutions in Europe, Australia, Asia, Latin America and Africa.
In fact, 58 percent of Muhlenberg graduates from the Class of 2018 studied abroad during their undergraduate years.
Muhlenberg supports four discipline-specific study abroad opportunities, two each semester:
The London Theatre Program at Goldsmiths College, University of London, and the program for accounting, business and economics majors at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands are offered during the fall semester.
A program for media and communication and film studies majors in Dublin, Ireland, and a dance program in Arezzo, Italy, are both offered during the spring semester.
In addition, Muhlenberg has established exchange opportunities in Europe and in Japan.
Some students choose to experience global education in an accelerated immersive experience. MILA (Muhlenberg Independent Learning Abroad) courses meet on campus during the semester and include faculty-led short-term study abroad trips between semester breaks.
Other students spend time in the nation’s capital, the Muhlenberg Washington DC semester, which offers a world of opportunity in every field of study. A small, personalized program, students live, study and intern while earning a full semester of academic credit during the fall or spring semesters or half a semester of credit in the summer.
