Study Abroad at a University Overseas: Directly enrolling at a university abroad can be beneficial for students seeking to make strides towards language fluency or to be immersed in a different culture. Grades earned at another university are transferred back to Marlboro. 

  • Finances: Students pay tuition, room and board directly to the university overseas. Students are eligible for federal financial aid but not institutional aid.
  • Procedure: Students will go on “Absentia 3.” They should schedule an appointment to come see Maggie and fill out an Absentia 3 application.

Study Abroad through a Provider: Every semester, Marlboro students go on accredited programs sponsored by another US institution or organization. Grades earned through another provider are transferred back to Marlboro. 

  • Finances: Students pay tuition, room and board directly to the program. Students are eligible for federal financial aid but not for institutional aid.
  • Procedure: Students will go on “Absentia 2.” They should schedule an appointment to come see Maggie and fill out an Absentia 2 application.

The World Studies Program is a degree track within the Marlboro curriculum, which integrates your degree field within an international context. Study your passion with an added layer of global perspective, become competent in another language, and spend 6-8 months at an international internship—that’s the core of WSP.

Students who complete the program receive a Bachelor of Arts or Science in International Studies and their area of concentration, and graduate with the combined advantages of a liberal arts education, professional experience in their chosen area of the world and an international resume—a head start in the global workplace.
