Even when you’re studying in one of the nation’s most culturally dense square miles, the value of international experience cannot be overstated.
An immersive experience
Studying abroad allows you to discover and immerse yourself in other cultures, gaining an appreciation for world issues and an advantage in grad school applications and job interviews. In fact, research links studying abroad to improved graduate school admission rates and increased starting salaries.
Case Western Reserve University undergraduates can choose from more than 70 opportunities abroad. Programs range from a week to a year, making it easy for CWRU students of all majors to pack their bags and reap the full benefits of international experience.
And they do.
