Become A Citizen Of The World

85% of Centre students study abroad at least once, making us a top-three school in the nation.

Our faculty go abroad too, allowing them to live on site with you, share their knowledge of the region, and plan trips and activities.

Spend shorter terms across the globe, with trips to nearly every continent during winter and summer terms. Previous trips include primate study in Barbados, religion and politics in India, sacred arts in Bali, political history in Vietnam, post-revolutionary life in Nicaragua, anthropology in Peru, politics and civil society in Cameroon, and volcanoes in New Zealand.

The cost of a Centre semester abroad is virtually the same as studying in Danville. All financial aid and scholarships remain in place during your semester abroad; all you pay is a $375 deposit (surcharge/emergency fund/carbon offset) due 11 March 2019, and a $25 travel medicine fee. Flights to the abroad site are also the responsibility of the student. 

Shorter abroad programs (during the summer and CentreTerm) are an additional cost. (More information about the costs of those programs can be found on the Summer Abroad and CentreTerm abroad pages.)

Students are only able to study abroad through a Centre semester-long program once, but they are able to spend up to three CentreTerms abroad and may participate in as many summer abroad programs as they wish.
