Right now, CGE students are studying abroad in Buenos Aires, London, Milan, and elsewhere. Like us on facebook
to see where the very first freshman has applied to study abroad this winter break!
DISCOVER: This is a picture of Mason students in Ecuador last January, including Jade, the rising sophomore who discovered how much Spanish her 5-year-old host sister could teach her while she earned three credits toward her Spanish minor.
That's right, many winter break programs are open to current freshmen, depending on whether or not you have fulfilled the prerequisites before the program departs. Last year at least one freshman studied abroad on each one of these programs:
emester or year-long programs are a great way to
immerse yourself in a different culture
experience what it's like to live
abroad. When you're living abroad the neighborhood where you reside becomes your neighborhood, and what was once so new and "foreign" becomes the norm.
Speaking of semester programs, our Oxford Honors Semester Program is a seventeen-year tradition that offers students unparalleled one-on-one attention from faculty at the most prestigious university in the world.
Please note this highly competitive program now offers a spring semester option as well!
CONNECT: Last but not least, study abroad is a great way to make new
friends and contacts as you connect your studies with your life and work back home! Be sure to join us next month on Monday, August 27 for our Welcome Week event
where you'll be able to meet other students who've recently studied abroad and hear from successful professionals about the connection they see between study abroad and their international careers.
Have a great weekend, enjoy the rest of your summer, and we'll see you soon!
