Study Abroad Program Expanding

June 22, 2010

Lindenwood University has expanded its course offerings to include new study abroad programs in Azerbaijan and Panama. The programs are in addition to existing opportunities in Costa Rica, France, and Germany, as well as European and Spanish-speaking destination trips.

Students can earn credits for their participation in the courses, which are organized through Lindenwood’s Center for International and Global Studies. The primary goal is to provide students the chance to experience cross-cultural exchanges.

“Students can gain a vivid and objective understanding of global issues and the complex interrelationships among cultures, political movements, environments, and religious traditions,” said Raymond Scupin, Ph.D., director of the Center for International and Global Studies. “They learn from leading scholars in the classroom, engage in internships with numerous organizations, and have the opportunity to explore different regions through independent and team projects.”

Ryan Guffey, Ph.D., associate director of the center, echoed Scupin’s remarks on the benefits of cultural immersion.

“Studying with host country instructors, living with local families, and taking part in group excursions help students gain a deep appreciation for other cultures and develop their language skills,” he said. “They can also learn first-hand about a wide range of topics, from the politics of identity and post-conflict transformation to global health and environmental policy issues.”
