Study Abroad & J-Term at Carthage
Plan Your Travel
A successful study abroad experience begins with careful planning and research, usually a year or more prior to the anticipated semester abroad. With the assistance of our Director of Education Abroad, Erik Kulke, you will be able to identify a program that is appropriate for your academic, social, and professional interests.
Additionally, the College offers a class (MLA 2200: Cultural Awareness Orientation) to you for your international experience and to arm you with the knowledge and tools necessary to deal with the differences (and associated challenges) you will encounter.
Financial Aid Awards Available
Thanks to the generosity of donors, Carthage has scholarship funds available to support students with financial needs and who wish to participate in short- or long-term study abroad programs.
