Honors Program students are encouraged to pursue a study abroad opportunity. Working with the Citadel Study Abroad office, we assist Honors Program students in selecting a destination and applying for scholarships to help pay for this travel.
Often, this study abroad is done during the summer. What could be better: seeing the world, expanding your horizons, AND getting some college credits or work experience during summer break?
Now cadets can also spend an entire semester studying abroad without negatively impacting progress toward their degree. With the growth of the Citadel Study Abroad Global Studies program, cadets enrolled in nearly every academic major at The Citadel are given the opportunity to spend a semester abroad, taking courses relevant to their majors while paying nearly the same amount to study there as they would pay for a semester of study at The Citadel.
Students have previously studied, either in the summer or for entire semester, in China, Costa Rica, Cyprus, Ecuador, Estonia, France, Guatemala, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Peru, Rwanda, Spain, Uganda, and the UK - just to name a few.
