Study Abroad
We believe in the importance of a global education because we are citizens of the world. Our primary mission in the Office of International Programs is to facilitate students and faculty to learn together in an international environment in order to promote a deeper global understanding and cross-cultural interaction. Undecided majors can especially benefit from our semester-long programs, and these programs are structured so that students from any major can attend any of them. Harding offers semester-long international programs in Australasia, Latin America, England, Greece, Italy and Zambia, as well as numerous short-term study abroad opportunities in locations including France, Italy, Greece, Spain, Germany, Morocco, Austria, Iceland and the United Kingdom. Each program is unique, but no matter which program a student chooses to attend, it is inevitable that he or she will return home with a new outlook on the world.
