+ Study Abroad – Hobart and William Smith Colleges \



Study Abroad

Whether it is interning with an organization in Vietnam, studying Spanish and living with a host family in Spain, or conducting fieldwork on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, your HWS experience can take you across the globe.

Most Hobart and William Smith students will participate in some kind of international learning experience before they graduate. CGE programs are developed carefully and intentionally, to integrate with and complement the HWS curriculum, and to foster personal growth and cross-cultural understanding. Advance planning is essential to ensuring that students in all majors and minors can study abroad and still graduate on time.

The programs listed on this page are recommended for students in Dance, but do note that the list is not comprehensive. Other locations may offer relevant coursework depending on a student’s individual academic needs and interests. Students may take courses abroad to earn credit toward majors and minors, as well as to address academic goals. However, it is critical that students review the list of courses (and descriptions) available in programs of interest with their academic adviser, department chair, and with staff of the Center for Global Education before applying.

Students have participated in dance technique classes from international teachers in international settings, attended various performances by artists around the world, performed in various artists’ venues, and taught dance in the local communities. Some students have also had the opportunity to enroll in dance-related courses that were being offered through the various international universities. Taking a personal initiative to pursue dance while abroad enriches the overall experience and provides a valuable learning opportunity.
