Philadelphia may be the heart of Drexel’s campus, but the world is our muse. It’s our annex for adventures, our playground for self-discovery, our vehicle for change. When we’re not thinking big in the classroom, we’re making a big impact out there — building sanitation systems in Nicaragua, studying endangered monkeys in Equatorial Guinea, uncovering fossils in the Canadian Arctic and touring battlefields in France.
Study abroad gives students a unique academic experience by learning about subjects from an international perspective, often with local students and professors. From Costa Rica to Barcelona, Milan to Turkey, Brazil to Israel, our students have studied all over the world.

Research extends far beyond the walls of any laboratory. Our students have studied sea turtles in Costa Rica, infectious diseases in Uganda and data from the Double Chooz experiment in France. Many of our faculty members are also involved in international research collaborations and our students have the opportunity to make an impact alongside them.

Co-op abroad provides students with a unique professional perspective and exposure to an international work environment. Our students have worked at Coca Cola in India, the UN Development Programme in Africa, the Italian Parliament in Rome, and the Heraklion Community Mental Health Center in Greece — just to name a few.
An international co-op gives students a distinct advantage in the global economy, making them more attractive to prospective employers. Candidates with international experience also have the ability to earn higher starting salaries upon graduation.

The College of Arts and Sciences’ travel-integrated courses allow students to travel domestically or internationally for one to two weeks at the end of a course to extend their studies beyond the classroom. Recent classes have traveled to France to learn about WWI and Brazil to study commodities exchange.
