International & Off-Campus Study

Recognizing the global nature of contemporary society as well as the need for intercultural understanding, Franklin & Marshall views international study as a valuable component of a liberal arts education. Study abroad promotes an increased understanding of the complexity of language and culture. It also constitutes a critical element of the College's commitment to build an increasingly international campus.  Franklin & Marshall therefore encourages its students to give serious consideration to study in another country, and over fifty percent of graduates study off-campus at some point during their time at F & M.

The College approaches international education as an integral part of the entire undergraduate experience. We view it not as a term away from campus, but as an encounter seamlessly connected with a student's entire education before, during, and after the time spent off campus. Students planning foreign or domestic off-campus study will work closely with the Office of International Programs and with their academic advisers to select programs and courses that further their educational goals.
