Global and Multicultural Education

Global education is a key mission of Bloomsburg University by preparing “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.

BU's Office of Global and Multicultural Education helps all students take advantage of the opportunity to live and explore a new and different culture in a safe and affordable manner.

Study Abroad

Spain Study Abroad

Study abroad offers students formidable career-enhancing experiences and new perspectives vital to personal growth. Rapid globalization in economics, arts and culture, science, and education means that students with significant immersion abroad will get better jobs and have richer lives—which is a statistical fact.

When students study abroad, they also contribute in the end to greater intercultural relations and improved ecological sustainability, because as a group they have a refined grasp of how humans relate to each other and to the natural environment.
