Want to study internationally? Nov. 12

November 9, 2009

In your mind's eye, can you picture yourself in Iceland, studying renewable energy, technology, and resource economics; in the Netherlands, studying international perspectives on sexuality and gender; or in Switzerland, studying global health and development policy? If so, you are probably ready to consider studying internationally through CSU's Office of International Programs!

"Weltanschauung" is a German word that means worldview. It's said that your worldview is a framework of ideas and beliefs through which you interpret the world and interact with it. 

Your weltanschauung creates a framework for generating, sustaining, and applying knowledge.

Studying internationally is said to reshape our worldview in positive ways -- it provides a larger social, cultural, and political context and shifts our worldview to that of global citizens! 

Learn about studying abroad

Interested in studying abroad? Come and meet with a CSU affiliate partner, the School for International Training, to find out what some of your options are.

On Thursday, Nov. 12, Colorado State's Office of International Programs is hosting Megan Wood, a representative from SIT, for an information session about study abroad. The session begins at 3 p.m. in Laurel Hall in the basement.

Options for international study

Colorado State has formal agreements with numerous universities abroad that allow CSU students to enroll in regular university classes with students from the host country or to enroll in classes designed for international students.

Some CSU-sponsored programs have a Colorado State faculty member who accompanies students abroad for one semester. These “faculty-in-residence” teach a class abroad in which CSU students are encouraged to enroll.

During the summer, CSU faculty-led programs are offered in conjunction with the Division of Continuing Education. These programs frequently have the added benefit of offering CSU credit rather than transfer credit for the courses taken abroad.
