Students at Connecticut College enjoy study abroad opportunities around the world due to Connecticut College's long standing tradition of recognizing the importance of international studies and experiences.

In recognition of its outstanding and innovative efforts in campus internationalization, Connecticut College received the 2009 Senator Paul Simon Award for Campus Internationalization from NAFSA: Association of International Educators, the world’s largest professional international education association.

Languages are strong here, and getting even stronger: In June 2009, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation awarded us a $375,000 grant for a major new language initiative.

Over half of Connecticut College students study away during their junior year through the College's own study abroad programs or through a variety of outstanding Connecticut College-approved programs throughout the world.
