Smeal strongly encourages students to participate in education abroad and about one fourth of our graduates have this experience. Discover how study abroad will fit with your personal and academic goals. You may choose a summer or semester program and perhaps consider earning an International Business Minor. Start your journey now by navigating the timing and eligibility requirements and exploring the many diverse Penn State programs offered all around the world.
International internship and service learning opportunities allow students to create meaning between their academic coursework, their future careers, and the world around them. Globalization is an increasingly important aspect of any business. Thus, many employers today are reported to value intercultural communication skills, global perspectives, and demonstrated adaptability that often are gained from an international work experience.
Instructors interested in teaching on a summer study abroad program or those already scheduled to do so, may find relevant information here.
For students studying here at Penn State from another country, the International Student web page links you to many resources which may help you find answers to your questions about housing, academic concerns, jobs, or ways to meet other students. Explore the resources that can help you best take advantage of all that Penn State life has to offer.
