Study Abroad- An Overview

55% of Connecticut College students who study throughout the world during their junior year do so 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 Katie McCormack, the Study Away Coordinator, with any questions about studying abroad, the application process and for general assistance in selecting a program.
For more in-depth questions, please contact Shirley Parson, the Director of Study Away.
