Community Impact

  • Global Outreach

    Our community doesn’t stop at our borders. At Worcester State University, we strongly believe seeing the world is the first step to creating positive global change. That’s why we encourage students to “study away” before graduation to experience other cultures firsthand—especially if you’re studying global studies, geography, natural sciences, sociology, or a foreign language. You can choose to study away for a semester, a summer, or an entire year. Shorter faculty-led trips—usually taken during winter, spring, or summer sessions—are also available.

    We partner with universities all over the world, including countries such as Argentina, Australia, Belize, Germany, Guatemala, India, Italy, Madagascar, Peru, and South Korea to provide an array of international exchange options. Many of our students also work in health clinics, schools, and conservation areas around the world.

    Studying elsewhere in the United States, U.S. territories, or Canada is another option through our membership with the National Student Exchange. You can choose from nearly 200 accredited, baccalaureate-granting colleges and universities in the United States, Canada, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands that are NSE members.

    Equipped with a globally focused perspective, you’ll be ready to compete in the multinational job market, speak with people in other countries, appreciate other cultures and practices, and better prepared to change how the world works.
