Manhattanville College offers, as part of its commitment to global and intercultural learning, the possibility of an international study abroad experience. All Study Abroad experiences seek to further the college's mission: To educate students to become ethically and socially responsible leaders for the global community.
Study Abroad Programs
Manhattanville offers the opportunity to visit the world. Our highly regarded connections with international institutions, colleges, universities and providers make living and studying abroad an even more appealing option. Spain, Italy, France, Ireland, the UK, Germany, Israel, South Africa, Japan, Costa Rica, Chile, Argentina, Puerto Rico, and Mexico are just some of the major countries that you can add to your academic and life experience. Our very competitive programs range from specializing in the arts, humanities and social sciences to programs in globalization, leadership and health and community concerns. Whether your desire is to study politics, the European Union or Asian fine arts, Study Abroad makes it happen.
The Study Abroad Office guides students through the research, application, and approval phases for overseas study. Manhattanville offers three types of programs — direct exchange, cooperative, and independent — to successful candidates to further their education through international institutions. Students interested in the programs offered should work with the Study Abroad advisor as early as possible. The College will only award transfer credit toward the student's degree for coursework approved beforehand. A student must maintain full-time status while away.
The Selection Process
Once a timely completed application has been received, it will be reviewed by the Faculty Study Abroad Selection Committee. Applications will be reviewed, and decisions will be made according to following criteria: Program rationale, strength of recommendations, placements available, and fit with major/career goals. Direct and cooperative placements are subject to available funding. If you are not selected for a direct exchange or cooperative program, there is always the option of an independent program.
The next application deadline will be February 23, 2020 - for Fall 2020 & Spring 2021.
