We aim to support all students that wish to pursue an education abroad experience. Perhaps you dream of spending the full academic year in Paris, but you have never left your home country. Maybe your heart is set on a summer in India, but you wonder how you will find funding.

From local to global and campus to international community, we aim to support and facilitate meaningful academic opportunities and exploratory experiences in and beyond the classroom. Pre-College and Summer courses, Education Abroad, and high-impact Global Internships are just a few of our offerings.

Our teams will support you throughout the processes and connect you with partner offices around campus to facilitate navigating all considerations that go into your planning and decision-making processes.

Semester Abroad

Our semester abroad programs offer three types of experiences; full imersion, island-style, and a hybrid of the two. A full immersion experience allows students to enroll in a local university, where an island-style experience allows students to take courses with other U.S. students in a traditional academic environment.

Summer Abroad

Our summer abroad programs are led by Emory faculty, with a few exceptions. Students can participate in multiple summer programs during any summer semester, including the summer after their senior year.

Independent Traveling

Students receiving course credit or financial support from and Emory College academic department for participating in an independent project, are required to register their travels with our office.

International Transient Study

Emory College or Oxford College international students may return to their country of origin to study at an accredited university and receive credit toward their Emory degree for this experience.

Global Internships

Emory Global Internships offers a comprehensive academic, professional and cultural experience! Challenge yourself through a guaranteed internship that corresponds with your field of study. Gain valuable career experience, earn academic credit, & develop transferrable skills.

Independent Internships

The Independent Internship Program consists of two hybrid courses designed for students participating in internships within the United States. Students will integrate knowledge derived from their academic studies with the experiences gained from real-world work settings.

Department Internships

Emory College academic departments have cultivated opportunities directly related to the relevant major areas of study. Some departments have long-standing programs and allow internship courses to count towards major credit.
