The opportunity to both travel and study can be a life-changing experience. It will leave you with a firsthand understanding of our increasingly global society, an appreciation for other cultures and their business and political institutions, and often with improved foreign language skills. International travel can make you a stronger candidate for graduate school and a more marketable employee for today's increasingly global workforce.
Western New England University offers traditional semester-long programs at universities around the world and our own unique semester-long programs or short Travel Courses.
London Calling: Spend the Spring Semester Studying in the UK
London is a vibrant, multicultural city offering endless opportunities to learn about history, culture, literature, politics, and international business. Through the Western New England University London Study Abroad program, qualifying freshmen and sophomores from the College of Arts and Sciences and College of Business can spend the spring semester studying together at Regent’s University London. A Western New England faculty member will serve as faculty-in-residence for the semester and teach two courses.

Short travel courses (typically 7-10 days) can be an eye-opening, career building experience. Recent faculty-led travel courses have visited such destinations as Brazil, China, Guatemala, Czech Republic, England, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Nicaragua, Peru, South Africa, and Spain.
