E&H Voted Affordable School for Study Abroad

by Billy Chandler
For the second time in 2017, Emory & Henry College study abroad has been named one of the top programs in the nation.

 

Great Value Colleges has ranked Emory & Henry #13 in the nation. The ranking highlights the faculty-led Emory Abroad courses that allow students to take an on-campus class around a topic related to one of the multitudes of locations offered in Africa, Europe, and Central or South America. At the end of the semester, the class travels overseas together for a two-week expedition.

The ranking took into the following factors:

  • Tuition Affordability
  • Percentage of Students Studying Abroad
  • Program Types Available
  • Program Management
  • Program Depth/Extent
  • Program Length
  • Study Abroad Scholarships Available
  • Awards and Recognition

Emory & Henry scored high marks for the opportunity it provides for students to travel to multiple countries in one go. Great Value Colleges spotlighted the Cross-Cultural Psychology trip that visits both the Czech Republic and Poland.

Studying abroad is an experience that provides global learning opportunities that are critical to a student’s success, and we’ve seen time after time the impact in can have on a professional and personal level.

Affordable Travel via Study Abroad Scholarships and more…

The college offers study abroad programs and exchanges for the semester and full year. For example, the Emory & Henry College Semester in Dublin, Ireland invites students to study Irish heritage and culture while enrolling in courses at Dublin City University and working 10-15 hours weekly in a community organization or business.

Although the abroad courses and accompanying adventure trips start under $2,000 with airfare, Emory & Henry makes studying abroad more affordable with three college-sponsored scholarships with awards ranging from $1,000 to $4,000.Great Value Colleges

Earlier this year, LendEDU ranked Emory & Henry College in the top 25 nationally for study abroad opportunities.

The college currently offers more than 100 study abroad programs in 45 countries.

The study abroad programs are part of a broader initiative to internationalize the campus and provide students with experiences that will enhance their education while creating global citizens.
