International Travel

This year our students studied and travelled widely abroad, including participating in the New School’s Democracy and Diversity graduate-level January term in Capetown, South Africa; attending a Model UN conference in South Korea; conducting research in China with a grant from the India China Institute; and participating in the Lang Cambodia program. Our students are clamoring for study abroad opportunities and eager to travel.

The countries our students visited this year for study or research include:

Turkey, Spain, Tibet, South Africa, South Korea, Nepal, Argentina, Mexico, Morocco, India, Kosovo, Great Britain, Guatemala, France, Ghana, Costa Rica, China, Brazil, Cambodia, Poland, Peru, Rwanda

The Global Studies Program has explored creating new concrete study abroad programs in Rwanda, Geneva, Kosovo, Cuba and Istanbul, and is eager to make some of these a reality with the crucial support of the university. Full proposals exist for a study trip to Rwanda, a semester-long program in Geneva, and a summer and semester program in Kosovo, and preliminary discussions have taken place for programs in Istanbul and Cuba. There is, however, no clear process at the university for moving these forward.
