Study Abroad- An Overview

Over half of Connecticut College students study throughout the world during their junior year through carefully selected College-approved study abroad programs, as well as through the College's own Study Away/Teach Away programs (SATA).

Whether you choose a SATA program or from the wide selection of College-approved programs in dozens of countries, all are designed to meet the majority of student's academic and lingustic needs, and to provide them an exceptional international experience. Students can begin planning for a study abroad experience during their sophomore year by using the suggested timelines.

Students are encouraged to contact Shirley Parson, Director of Study Away, or Elizabeth Brewer, Study Away Coordinator, with any questions about studying abroad, the application process and for general assistance in selecting a program.

SATA programs offer a perfect balance of academics, adventure, community, and independence!
