International Experience

Travel the World. It’s On Us!

Here Travel is Education

We believe every student deserves a global education, and the best way to do that is to travel to another country. At Cottey, sophomore level students (28-56 credits) and transfer students (after completion of 24 credits at Cottey) will have the opportunity to spend the first week of spring break visiting a European city with classmates and faculty, learning about art, history, science and culture. There is no extra tuition fee for the trip and Cottey pays for your airfare and hotel.You’re only responsible for meals, insurance, and incidentals

Semester Study Abroad

Some of our baccalaureate degree programs contain a study abroad requirement which allows our students to spend a semester or more overseas. They take courses for credit, and develop a truly international perspective. Our students have traveled to Hong Kong, Mexico, Turkey, Jamaica, China, Japan, South Africa, and one spent an entire semester sailing as part of the study-abroad program.
