    Extend your Hamline education beyond Saint Paul, Minnesota! Each year, 400 Pipers like you become compassionate citizens of the world through the study abroad experience. Maximize your intellectual, creative, and leadership potential by immersing yourself in a new and different land, culture, and people.

    "The best thing about studying abroad was being outside of the traditional classroom structure and learning on your own. When you're abroad, you're learning 24/7. It revamped my enthusiasm for the pursuit of knowledge. Studying abroad pushed me to new depths in all facets of my life. I gained a new-found confidence in myself and my capabilities."

    - Matt Sindelar '10 (Prior Lake, Minnesota)

    This is no cookie-cutter program; Hamline believes strongly in the importance of individual program design. There are multiple Hamline-sponsored programs and partnerships worldwide, so you’ll find opportunities to work on topics that are at the forefront of your field of research or future professional interest, whatever that may be.

    Choose from one or more of the following options for your study abroad experience:

    • Semester/Year Long: Spend four to nine months immersed in another culture! This option is an excellent choice for your junior year, though you may be eligible as soon as the second semester of sophomore year.
       
      Destinations include: England, Germany, Senegal, Chile, Japan, China, and Spain


    • J-Term/May Term: If you prefer to limit your experience to a four-week period, this option is for you. A variety of these four-credit courses are designed by Hamline professors to help you complete your Hamline Plan requirements. The best part? You may participate in one of these experiences as soon as your first-year!
       
      Destinations include: Australia, Galapagos Islands, Jamaica, Greece, Spain, and Peru


    • Summer: This option is ideal for student-athletes, RAs, and other students who are looking for a longer experience abroad but cannot get away for a full semester. You can choose your own country and study topic, and can earn anywhere from four to 12 credits.
       
      Destinations include: Greece, England, Ireland, Scotland, Spain, Norway, and Korea

    There are a variety of study abroad programs available to meet the needs of Hamline's diverse student population, and you may participate in one or more study abroad program. Whatever your study abroad goal may be, Hamline can help you achieve it.
