Experiential Learning

Global Experience

Today’s workforce must function in a global economy. Information, products, and individuals collaborate across national borders with ever-increasing frequency and speed. iSchool graduates play a key role in this increasing global economy, and the iSchool is committed to preparing students to be successful in this environment. There are many opportunities for iSchool students to develop the tools that will enable them to function in this global economy.

Semester Abroad

Students can spend one or more semesters abroad taking courses at a Syracuse University Abroad location.

World Partner Exchange

Students can spend a semester at an iSchool-affiliated university overseas.  Details on the World Partner Exchange.

Short Term Abroad Program

Students can attend EuroTech,  AsiaTech, or any of the Syracuse University Abroad short term programs.

International Internship

Students can complete a summer- or semester-long internship at a company abroad, or do a State Department Virtual Internship.


Students can complete six credits of coursework from the list of iSchool-approved global experience courses.

Students who would like to take advantage of these opportunities should contact their academic advisor and Syracuse University Abroad, or Kathryn Allen (kallen02@syr.edu; 315-443-4251).
