The opportunity to study abroad, whether for a few weeks or a whole year, is one of the best things a college can provide.
At Marlboro, we encourage our students to travel; our Study Away program is deeply integrated into our curriculum. Our students’ off-campus studies provide material for their Plan of Concentration research, and their travel experiences help prepare them for life after Marlboro.
Just a few examples
Study abroad in China allowed for fieldwork that transformed a Plan about cross-cultural attitudes toward herbal medicine and vaccines. A Semester-in-the-City internship in New York led one of our students to a career as a community organizer. A World Studies program in Chile led an introverted student to push beyond their comfort zone. And when a group of students launched a cross-country expedition to study soil health from the back of converted school bus—well, there’s a lot to say about that. (And most of it’s on Instagram.)
Limited only by your imagination
If you want to study abroad, you’ll work one-on-one with staff in the Center for Experiential Learning and Global Engagement to find an opportunity that fits your academic goals and your post-graduation plans.
Students in our World Studies program spend up to eight months living, working, and learning outside the U.S. Other students go on international exchanges with our partner schools in Mexico, Nigeria, Germany, and China. And some join faculty-led trips built around courses that benefit from immersion in a different culture.
Expand your horizons without leaving the country
If you’d rather stay in the States, we offer domestic exchanges with schools in Vermont and across the country that share our values.
You can also take advantage of opportunities offered through other colleges or design your own grant-funded research trip. We’ll help you sort out the details to make it work.
