College is an ideal time to travel.

You will already be opening yourself up to new ideas, people and experiences, so you might as well take it one step further and explore new places, too. There are plenty of traditional semester-long study-abroad programs, but increasingly, colleges are offering — and sometimes even requiring — new ways for students to travel internationally.

Some schools, including Goucher College, Susquehanna University and Soka University of America, have gone so far as to require all undergraduates to study abroad, while other schools have chosen to make it an integral part of select majors and courses. Below are five schools that do just that.

1. University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, Minnesota

With the goal of graduating students who possess meaningful global perspectives, the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management requires all business majors to spend time abroad through its International Experience program. While this can be accomplished through traditional study-abroad programs, it can also be done through research, volunteer work, internships or even gap years. Additionally, there are semester-long on-campus courses that culminate in a two-week trip in May or June, after the academic year has ended, which satisfy the requirement.

2. Dickinson College, Carlisle, Pennsylvania

Each semester Dickinson College offers one Global Mosaic class, which supplements an on-campus course with two weeks of fieldwork and cultural submersion. For example, students enrolled in Cuban Mini Mosaic: The African Diaspora went to Cuba to conduct field research. Previous courses brought students to Nepal, Japan, Italy and Brazil. The objective of these trips is to expose Dickinson students to a range of thought and experience so they can bring that broader perspective when they go on to work with diverse communities on local, national and international levels.

3. George Washington University, Washington, D.C.

If you want travel to be a significant part of your undergraduate experience, you should consider George Washington University. It offers a Global Bachelor’s Program that requires students to spend at least two semesters abroad, and it begins sophomore year with students traveling to Belfast or Shanghai. Juniors can go to a location of their choice, and there is only one required course that must be taken at the school’s DC campus during senior year, leaving lots of opportunity for travel. The Global Bachelor’s Program is open to students in the Columbian College of the Arts & Sciences, Elliott School of International Affairs and the School of Business, but they must apply during the spring semester of their freshman year.

4. Southern Methodist University, Dallas, Texas

Students in the University Honors Program at Southern Methodist University can choose from semester-long courses each spring that are supplemented with travel to a related destination over spring break. While the offerings change each year, classes for the Spring 2019 Semester include a history course on persecution and human rights that takes students to Berlin and a medieval studies class on pilgrimages that travels to Jerusalem. These trips offer an immersive learning experience and the opportunity to broaden a student’s perspective.

5. Macalester College, Saint Paul, Minnesota

Based on the premise that travel is a path to intellectual and cultural engagement, Macalester College’s Anthropology Department requires its majors to complete a semester somewhere else in the United States or in a foreign country. Each student’s experience must be grounded in independent research or fieldwork, and participants are given the option of designing their own off-campus experience or selecting from an approved program in countries like South Africa, Senegal, Bolivia, Peru, China, Mongolia and Nepal.

These five schools are a tiny subset of the vast opportunities available to students to incorporate travel into their college experience. If travel is a priority for you, look for schools that promote it by making it a core part of their curriculum — whether for a single class or woven throughout all four years.
