So, why study away? You'll be able to work on solutions to the tough problems we face today, nationally and globally, while also furthering your education. That sounds pretty good to us. On top of that, there are a few other reasons study away might be the right choice for you.
Expand your leadership skills.
Norwich University prepares students to serve as leaders in their careers, their communities, and throughout the world. At Norwich, we stress a diversity of perspective as a hallmark of leadership. These Study Away opportunities allow you to look at tough problems in new ways, thus broadening your perspective.
Gain a new perspective on world affairs.
The U.S. is hard at work finding solutions to problems that affect not only us, but every living thing on our planet. Through our partner institutions, you can explore broader questions on subjects concerning the environment, politics, foreign policy, economics, the media, justice, public health, and sustainability.
Develop new abilities.
Being immersed in a global problem presents you with an opportunity to discover new strengths, conquer new challenges, and solve new problems.
Is this your first immersive experience off campus? Not to worry. Many students report that they returned to Norwich University with a newfound sense of independence and pride.
Gain a competitive edge for graduate school admissions.
If you wish to continue your higher education into either a master’s or a doctorate program, a Study Away experience can give you a competitive edge.
Learn more about yourself.
Students return home with new ideas and perspectives about themselves. Immersive learning deepens your understanding about yourself and can give you a greater sense of purpose and direction.
Begin building professional relationships.
It is never too early to begin building professional relationships. Ask any professor, mentor, or role model, and they'll share stories of relationships they established as students in immersive learning experiences that have endured throughout their lives and careers.
Become prepared for the increasingly globalized business world.
Globally minded employees are in high demand. Immersive experience is a critical and impressive part of any résumé. In addition to the personal growth you’ll undergo, the skills you’ll develop can expand your employment opportunities and, consequently, your income potential.
