Global and Multicultural Education


Global education is central to the mission of Bloomsburg University, which states that the university “prepares students for personal and professional success in an increasingly complex global environment.”

Multicultural and global competencies, including foreign language acquisition, have gained enormous value in an increasingly interconnected world. Study abroad fosters the development of culturally perceptive citizens who engage effectively with local and global communities.

The goal of the Office of Global and Multicultural Education is to help all students take advantage of the opportunity to live and learn in a new and different cultural context with a commitment to safety and affordability.

Let a few of our past study abroad students convince you why this international experience is a can't miss opportunity.

"Studying abroad has definitely benefited me in seeing cultures and people working together in many ways! I cannot wait to bring back the lessons and teachings from Denmark back to the students of Bloomsburg as well as my students in my future as a teacher!"Olivia Edelman (in Denmark, Spring 2014)
