During the semester, classes meet regularly to study a topic related to the locations to be visited. This spring, E&H employees will lead trips to Trinidad & Tobago, Greece, Dominican Republic, England, France, The Netherlands, Sweden and Belize.Students get unique opportunities to travel abroad at Emory & Henry College

Ranking Qualifications

Schools on the Best College Reviews list were selected based on several criteria, including:

  • Limited program enrollment, ensuring an intimate experience while abroad
  • Length of at least one semester
  • Faculty involvement during program
  • Dedicated college or university specific international location, not simply an enrollment at an international university

According to Nick Plato, author of the ranking, said quality study abroad programs go beyond personal growth: "Study abroad programs provide opportunity for broadening the mind, growing compassion, and allowing the person to see the world through a new lens, but it also can help graduates land jobs. Many potential employers see international experience as a qualification in hiring college graduates."
