Study Away and Abroad

Take the lead and take an adventure with one of the many study away programs from Hamline University’s Global Engagement Center. You'll expand your worldview and your resume while you make connections and build friendships abroad. While you're away, you can still fulfill important requirements like major classes or electives so you can stay on track for graduation and life beyond college.

You can study away from Hamline on an international or domestic program for a semester, a year, a summer, spring break, or during J-Term. Whether you travel to Appalachia or the Arctic, the Gulf Coast or Guatemala, your program will help you embrace the opportunity to challenge your beliefs and values; learn about different worldviews; and encourage self-discovery as you step outside your own culture and perspectives.
