Study Abroad 

Studying abroad allows Mount students to experience the world, lending a global perspective and providing valuable opportunities for personal growth. We offer two options for travel abroad: long-term, traditional study abroad and short-term travel study. 

Find out more about study abroad on the Study Abroad FAQ page.



Students who travel abroad gain a wider perspective and an open mind about different cultures. In addition to providing opportunities for personal growth, travel study programs foster awareness and respect for cultural, political, environmental, and social issues. A student’s self-confidence and independence matures while studying in new locations. Travel study experiences can be beneficial to students as they explore career paths.
