CNR’s Study Abroad Program introduces you to different cultures, customs and perspectives by giving you the option to earn college credit while completely immersing yourself in a foreign culture. You will become fluent in another language; you will challenge your ethnocentric beliefs, gain leadership skills, and even become a better citizen.
You can choose to study abroad for a semester, or for 7-10 days with our Bridging Cultures program.
MAKE IT HAPPEN
The Russel and Deborah Taylor Foundation for Semester Abroad Study Funds Half the Cost
Select students may take advantage of all that semester and summer abroad study has to offer through scholarships made available by the Russel and Deborah Taylor Foundation. Awards are granted each semester, and any student within the CNR School of Arts & Sciences and School of Nursing with a cumulative 3.0 GPA or above may apply. An application, selection criteria, and deadlines apply.
Scholarships are awarded to students studying abroad after their freshman year. Total costs for a semester abroad vary, depending upon the location selected for study, with summer programs costing less. The Taylor Foundation scholarships cover fifty percent of costs.
Why Study Abroad?
In a multicultural world in transition, understanding a foreign language and culture is essential. At The College of New Rochelle, all students — especially foreign language students — who wish to study abroad for a semester or two, or during the summer, are encouraged to do so. Students who wish to study abroad must have a cumulative index of 2.7 and the recommendation of their department chairperson or advisor.
More than ever, business and government need people expert in foreign studies who are able to
communicate and function in more than one cultural environment.
The experience of studying abroad offers rich intellectual exchange: the opportunity to really appreciate the way other people live.
Learning abroad has an affective dimension that prompts students to question their values and reflect on their ethnocentricity.
CNR Bridging Cultures
Courses include classroom-based sessions during the academic semester followed by a one week to ten day trip to a selected country. Bridging Cultures courses have focused on Oaxaca, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Spain, Guadeloupe (Caribbean), Québec and Paris. Accompanied by CNR faculty, students reside in hotels, guest houses, or college residences. They visit sites of historical and cultural interest, sample local foods, attend lectures and performances, and give on-site presentations. They also participate in service learning experiences, such as educational programs for children, community activities for people with special needs and interview local politicians.
Each student carries out a self designed project in her major field of study.
