THE WORLD AWAITS
As beautiful as our campus is, we know it’s part of a much bigger mosaic. After living, learning, and working in another country and culture, Carthage students consistently return transformed. We know because they say so.

Choose Your Next Adventure
nationally for participation in short-term study abroad
How long would you like to study abroad? Carthage offers multiple options, from a few weeks to a year. Anyone can do it, regardless of major.
Led by professors, our J-Term study tours are incredibly popular. Dive in — in some cases, literally — to explore a topic you’ve only read about. Carthage sends more students on that kind of short-term study abroad than all but four schools in the country. Scholarships are available.
Or immerse yourself more deeply in a culture. All modern language majors study abroad for an extended period, but they’re not the only ones. In recent years, our students have spent a semester (or more) on every continent except Antarctica.
Carthage has become a pipeline to major international fellowships. Since 2008, the Fulbright Program has selected dozens of our students to teach English or conduct research in other parts of the world.
“My passion is traveling. My goal in life is to experience as much of the world as I can. When I learned about the J-Term study tours here at Carthage, I knew it was something I could not pass up. The opportunities to travel during J-Term showed me that Carthage was where I was meant to be.”
