Study Abroad
How would you like to ride a donkey in Greece, taste authentic pizza straight from a brick-fire oven in Italy or wander through beautiful lavender fields in France? Every year, approximately 50 Mount Union students leave Alliance for the summer, semester or full academic year to study abroad. Students participate in a variety of approved programs at nearly 50 different universities in 29 foreign countries. Through study abroad, students acquire academic and experientially based field studies and/or internship experiences in other cultures.


While there are several benefits to incorporating a study abroad experience into your time at Mount Union, here are just a few:

  • Gaining the ability to adapt to a new environment 
  • Exploring stunning locations and making new friends while earning college credit
  • Making yourself highly marketable to employers due to your experience of stepping outside your comfort zone and interacting with people from other cultures
  • Expanding your understanding of yourself and the world

The Center for Global Education offers advising and an application process to ensure that the study abroad experience serves students' individual goals and complements their Mount Union coursework. Programs are researched and evaluated to help make sure that you have a safe, rewarding experience.


For more information about study abroad opportunities, contact the Center for Global Education at (330) 823-3864 or email dellinsa@mountunion.edu.
