The School of Humanities and Social Sciences believes that study abroad is an invaluable supplement to a liberal arts education. Students who undertake it often find that it results in one of the most profound experiences of their college years and contributes significantly to their overall intellectual development and social maturation. There is no better way to enrich one's understanding of the diversity of the human experience or the position that the United States of America occupies within it.
Many Citadel faculty members regularly travel abroad to teach or do research in their areas of specialization. They are great sources for students seeking ideas or information about the possibilities for undertaking study abroad.
Individual departments within the School of Humanities and Social Sciences direct opportunities to study in a variety of countries, including England (Summer), England (Fall), China, France, Germany, Mexico and Spain. The Citadel's Office of International Studies assists students who wish to study abroad for a semester or a full academic year under the auspices of other colleges and universities. Each year, increasing numbers of our students avail themselves of these opportunities.
This marks the fourth consecutive year The Citadel has offered financial assistance to students who have a major within the school of Humanities and Social Sciences. There are several criteria that must be fulfilled in order to be considered for one of these awards.
The School of Humanities & Social Sciences, in partnership with the Office of the Provost, is pleased to announce these four students as the recipients of the SHSS Study Abroad Award.
