Study Abroad

Internships:  Study Abroad isn't just a great opportunity for studying, but it’s also a unique chance to network and earn global internships. Employers prefer to hire graduates with hands-on experience in their majors. You can gain valuable practical experience and enhance your classroom learning through an internship. In addition to providing insight into your future career, working as an intern will give you a competitive advantage in the job market because of the skills you have developed while in the position. The ability to understand how other cultures work in other countries is particularly appealing to employers. Our office can also help you to obtain international internships.

Research: Students have the opportunity to do independent research abroad.  Students can also do research at world class universities like the University of Leuven on Renewable Energy with Fast Flying Tethered Airfoils Driven by the Wind - Modeling, Simulation, and Optimization or Finding key mechanisms of the destructive process in joints of patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis at the University of Zurich.  There are world class researchers who are looking for students to come work with them.

Service-Learning:  In its purest form, service-learning is a method of teaching that allows students to deepen their knowledge of culture by planning, implementing, and reflecting on a community-service experience. In its most basic form, it is an opportunity for students to be involved in the world outside of Gonzaga by providing a service to the community.
