Why Study Abroad?
At Madonna University, we believe that foreign travel is an integral part of a well-rounded education. We live in a global society, which means that no matter where you live, work, or go to school, you will always be in contact with people from other countries. Studying abroad gives you the opportunity to temporarily live in a different culture, to experience a different way of life, and to learn essential communication skills.

In addition to several short travel and study programs offered every year, the Center for Study Abroad also has reciprocity agreements with a number of institutions around the world, which allow Madonna students to study overseas and non-American students to study at Madonna.

The Center for Study Abroad works to create a positive mindset for the global education of students, faculty, staff, and the community. International experiences, study abroad, and internship opportunities support the intention of graduating students who are competent to serve in the global marketplace.

Mission and Goals
The mission of the Center for Study Abroad is to initiate, promote, support, and administer University programs related to study abroad and foreign travel; to develop and implement strategies for internationalizing the curriculum; and to serve as a professional development resource for students, faculty, and staff.

Center for Study Abroad
Dr. Cathleen Andonian, Director 

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one corner of the Earth all one’s lifetime.” 
-Mark Twain
