As a leading international studies school, it is important that our students get that “international” experience – both inside and outside the classroom. One way in which we provide students with those international experiences is through our study abroad programs.
The Josef Korbel School of International Studies offers graduate students two world-class study abroad opportunities. Korbel in D.C. and Korbel in Geneva seek to enhance students’ engagement in international relations through exchange programs in Washington, D.C. and in Geneva, Switzerland. These competitive and selective programs enrich one’s understanding of today’s global issues.
- In conjunction with Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs and the University of Pittsburgh’s Graduate School of Public and International Affairs
- 20 second-year students are selected to live and study in D.C. during the Fall
- Students take courses at night and participate in internships during the day
- 10 second-year students are selected to live and study in Geneva for six months
- Students participate in an academic exchange with the Graduate Institute for International and Development Studies
- Two courses are completed, as well as an internship at a Geneva-based organization
Here’s a brief testimonial from a recent Korbel in D.C. returnee:
“My experience with the Korbel in D.C. program was even better than I anticipated. It helped me to explore different aspects of my desired career field, as well as gain valuable experience and knowledge that I brought back to Denver with me. If you are interested in exploring a career in D.C. or want to develop a deeper understanding of today’s global issues, the Korbel in D.C. and Korbel in Geneva programs are great options to explore.” – Jenifer Wolin, Korbel in D.C., Fall 2015
