Study Abroad

A deep cultural understanding and knowledge of the social, economic, political, and scientific forces that shape our world are integral components of a liberal arts education and necessary for effective leadership on local, national, and international levels. Our students embrace education abroad–three-quarters of the student body travel abroad for research, service, work or internship opportunities.

Davidson sponsors multiple study-abroad programs in addition to the more than 100 academic programs that are operated by third-party providers around the world. Davidson holds programs in Germany, China, England, France, Ghana, India, Italy, Peru, Spain and Zambia.

Through these and other study abroad programs, political science majors, as well as students from other disciplines, have the opportunity to travel, conduct original research, learn from international experts, and become responsible global citizens.
