Exploring Overseas Opportunities

Thinking of studying, working or volunteering overseas?  Davidson College has many resources to support your international interests.  The Dean Rusk International Studies Program (the offices of study abroad, the international student advisor, and a grants and programming staff) works to give a global dimension to every student’s education.  Learn about available travel grants for a project overseas or how to take a semester abroad, while studying at Davidson.

In addition, Career Services provides a wide variety of services and programs that provide you with the ability to explore your interests in international opportunities.  Programs like Peace Corps and JET (Teach English in Japan) recruit regularly on campus.  Check out the International Opportunities section, under Students, on the Career Services website for more resources and information.
