For the second time in 2017, Emory & Henry College study abroad has been named one of the top programs in the nation.
Great Value Colleges has ranked Emory & Henry #13 in the nation. The ranking highlights the faculty-led Emory Abroad courses that allow students to take an on-campus class around a topic related to one of the multitudes of locations offered in Africa, Europe, and Central or South America. At the end of the semester, the class travels overseas together for a two-week expedition.
The ranking took into the following factors:
Emory & Henry scored high marks for the opportunity it provides for students to travel to multiple countries in one go. Great Value Colleges spotlighted the Cross-Cultural Psychology trip that visits both the Czech Republic and Poland.

The college offers study abroad programs and exchanges for the semester and full year.

Although the abroad courses and accompanying adventure trips start under $2,000 with airfare, Emory & Henry makes studying abroad more affordable with three college-sponsored scholarships with awards ranging from $1,000 to $4,000.Great Value Colleges
