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 and your airfare. 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.

Biography

Kyle David Anderson is director of the Center for Global Citizenship, after serving as assistant professor of Chinese and chair of Asian studies at Centre College. He began working for the College in 2010 as an Arthur Vining Davis Post-Doctoral Teaching Fellow and was later named a Centre Scholar (2016). Anderson is a former Fulbright junior scholar (Taiwan) and Fulbright-Hays fellow (China and Italy). He holds degrees in comparative literature from Brigham Young University and The Pennsylvania State University, where he specialized in Chinese and Italian languages and literatures.

His literary scholarship deals with the history of Sino-Italian literary exchange. Recent work includes groundbreaking studies of Jiao Naifang’s adaptation of Boccaccio’s Decameron (An Eastern Decameron 东方十日谈, 2000) and Europe’s first chivalric romance focused on China (Il Magno Vitei, 1597). Anderson is also a translator of modern and contemporary Chinese and Italian poetry and prose. His work has appeared in Pathlight: New Chinese Writing, China Scenic, the Los Angeles Review of Books and others. He was awarded the Nanjing Young Literary Translators Award in 2015 for his work on avant-garde writer Su Tong’s novellas. Anderson currently serves as co-editor of the bilingual poetry quarterly, Poetrysky.

Anderson is also one of the College’s more active study abroad instructors, having lead 8 different trips to Asia, Europe and the UK in his first seven years at Centre. He introduced faculty and student groups to Southern China, Tibet, Thailand and Myanmar. His ongoing involvement in the College’s Henry Luce LIASE implementation grant has secured future opportunities for students to study and intern in Asia. Finally, Anderson is a founding member and Director of External Affairs of Myanmar’s first liberal arts college, the Parami Institute of Liberal Arts & Sciences.

His service to the campus community was recognized in 2013 with the annual C. Eric Mount, Jr. Student Appreciation Award.
