North Central College is one of only five institutions in the world to receive the 2015 Senator Paul Simon Award for Comprehensive Internationalization. We've earned this recognition by greatly expanding our study abroad program and attracting more international students to our campus. This expands the number of opportunities for students to study international fields, offering global awareness programs in campus.
Our Office of International Programs can advise you on selecting a program and destination, whether you choose to:
Go it alone
Spend one term, two terms or a whole year studying in places from Japan to Jordan, from Ghana to Germany, from Singapore to Scotland.
Go with a group
Travel with your classmates and a favorite professor to exciting destinations, usually during D-Term. And you can often get course credit while immersed in a fascinating new culture.
Go learn another language
In today's global economy, a second language gives you a career advantage while growing your understanding of the larger world.
You can also explore distant cultures by serving others. The Office of Ministry and Service invites you to explore a service mission to help bring relief to the less fortunate corners of the world.
At North Central, we encourage you to take advantage of the rare opportunities offered by our Study Abroad program. Your cultural and social interactions will expand your understanding of today’s interconnected world. And you’ll return home with more than great memories. The experience will change your life.
Be central. Go global.
