Carthage is committed to providing a strong foundation in the liberal arts for all of its students. To this end, the College is committed to providing students with the opportunity to study overseas to complement the education they receive here in Kenosha.
Carthage has affiliated with several reputable institutions in order to provide our students with academically rigorous, high-quality international programs in a variety of locations around the globe.
In the past few years, Carthage students have spent semesters or academic years (or equivalent) on every continent except Antarctica; in locations as far-flung as Argentina, Australia, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Egypt, England, France, Germany, Ghana, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Peru, Senegal and Spain. In fact, Carthage is ranked No. 3 among baccalaureate institutions for student participation in short-term study abroad.
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 prepare students for their international experience and to arm them with the knowledge and tools necessary to deal with the differences (and associated challenges) they will encounter.
