Global Learning

Off-campus studies range from taking a semester at another university in the United States through the National Student Exchange Program to studying for a semester at a university abroad.  Another popular option is a Global Field Course, where you and your classmates travel with faculty for intensive field study in locations ranging from the Grand Canyon to Italy, Australia and Iceland.  Off-campus study will expand your horizons, immerse you in new cultures and provide opportunities to meet new friends and explore the world.

Student Testimonials

Study Abroad
London, England

Lauren Knowles ’23

Lauren studied abroad in London, England, while a student at Eastern. She noted that besides meeting other American students at the University of Roehampton, she also encountered many students from Australia who were studying abroad as well. “It was a great opportunity to be able to learn about Australian culture while also learning about the British culture and of course making global friendships!”

Danielle Gallagher
Field Course in Hawaii

Danielle Gallagher ’20

“We spent so much time in nature — restoring an ancient fish pond, exploring lava tubes, hiking the ancient petroglyph trail — it was impossible to ignore the respect people have for the land. I came to realize some of my own cultural biases. Being aware of these biases will enable me to interact better with individuals from a multitude of cultural backgrounds.”

Chelsy Poppo
Studied in Greece

Chelsy Poppo ’19

Chelsy studied abroad in Greece. “My coursework at Hellenic American University in Athens included a class called Athens Across the Ages. It was great because each session was held at a different location in Athens. It was intriguing to study there as a political science major since Athens is known as the birthplace of democracy and because of the current political climate.”
