Study Away

Learning Every Day, Everywhere.

For a small school, Widener University sure gets around. We offer a broad range of study away options for you to develop your leadership skills, practice communicating across cultures, and extend your learning beyond our main campus in Chester.

From participating in a faculty and student exchange program with universities in Chongqing, China to researching marine life in South America to working alongside Widener University President James T. Harris on a spring break community service project, Widener’s study away programs help you gain the skills and knowledge you need to succeed in today’s global world.

  • Our semester break programs in countries like Argentina, Bolivia, Costa Rica, and Panama blend student research, leadership, cross-cultural communication and service learning.
  • Students in Widener’s Hospitality Management program keep abreast of industry trends on our study away programs in Australia, Italy and Switzerland.
  • Through Widener’s chapter of Engineers without Borders, you can use your new skills to solve pressing needs in communities around the world.

We’re committed to making study away accessible to every student.

Plus, we have a host of on-campus clubs and groups, like the French Club, the Asian Students and Scholars Association, and International Week where you can continue to increase your global competency through fun, intercultural activities.
