Intl. Experiences

Travel the world, it’s on us!

We believe every student deserves a global education, and the best way to do that is to travel to another country. At Cottey, students will have the opportunity to spend the first week of spring break abroad with classmates, faculty, and staff learning about art, history, science, and culture.

There is no extra tuition fee for the trip, while  Cottey covers all program fees, airfare, and hotel. You’re only responsible for meals, insurance, and incidentals.

Students are eligible once they meet the following three criteria:

  1. Registered as a full-time student the fall semester before and the spring semester during the international experience.
  2. Achieved junior status (at least 56 credits) by the start of the fall semester prior to the international experience.
  3. Completed at least two semesters at Cottey College as a full-time student by the end of the fall semester prior to the international experience.

Semester Study Abroad

Some of our baccalaureate students spend a semester or more overseas. They take courses for credit, and develop a truly international perspective. Our students have studied in  Hong Kong, China, Japan, South Africa, Ghana, Spain, France, the UK, Costa Rica, Argentina, Chile, and one spent an entire semester studying at sea, comparing cultures at port cities around the world.
