Study Abroad/Away

Carlow University students have many opportunities to study abroad in countries around the world for a full academic year, a semester, a summer, or spring break. To explore these opportunities, check out the Carlow University Study Abroad page.

Carlow University students also have opportunities to study away (within the United States) through service trips to areas that are culturally distinct from our region, working with diverse populations, or studying at other universities.

Other Internships and Professional Work Experiences

Students are encouraged to begin working with the Office of Career Development early in their academic careers. This office can connect students with external businesses and organizations to gain professional work experience through internships.
