The world is your classroom. Acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills to be prepared for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world. Since 1925, Smith College has been a pioneer in the field of study abroad, demonstrating that active engagement in the world enhances a liberal arts education. Spend a semester or academic year on one of Smith’s own programs in Florence, Geneva, Hamburg or Paris, or choose from Smith’s consortium and approved programs in places such as Spain, Japan, India, Mexico and the Middle East. Travel to locations around the globe with faculty-led programs during January interterm or work at an internship for the summer. Find the program that’s right for you.
