Global Focus



Students teach Middle-Eastern dancing and share traditional foods at a recent event in Knowlton Language House.

The world awaits you. We provide the pathways.

Going to Connecticut College means going global. More than half of our students study abroad – but that’s only part of the picture. Virtually every academic discipline has an international dimension, including environmental studies, literature, religion, economics and the arts.

You can also internationalize any major with intensive language study or a funded internship overseas, including those offered through our Toor Cummings Center for International Studies and the Liberal Arts.

Join an international club. Exchange world views with fellow students from 70 countries and professors doing cross-border, cross-cultural research. Live in Knowlton, our international residence hall, or drop by the 1973 Room in Harris for lunch at one of the language tables. 

We were honored with the 2009 Senator Paul Simon Award for Campus Internationalization and received a Mellon Foundation grant for our innovative language programs. Connecticut College is consistently recognized as a top producer of Fulbright scholars, with 31 awarded in the past six years.
