Study Abroad

Most Hobart and William Smith students will participate in some kind of international learning experience before they graduate. CGE programs are developed carefully and intentionally to integrate with and complement the HWS curriculum and to foster personal growth and cross-cultural understanding.

A semester studying abroad can be an excellent opportunity to examine public policy in a comparative context. The following programs typically offer a number of courses that may count towards a minor in Public Policy Studies: Brussels; Maastricht; Lisbon; Copenhagen; and Seoul.  Other study abroad programs also may be suitable. Students are strongly encouraged to discuss their options with their PPOL minor adviser and seek pre-approval of the course(s) they wish to count towards the PPOL minor.
