Study Abroad

All students are strongly encouraged to study abroad for a portion (semester or year) of their graduate education and to apply for external grants and/or fellowships to support this study.  Mentors and dissertation advisors will work closely with students to design an appropriate course of study abroad in connection with the student’s particular interests and area(s) of specialty to be developed in the dissertation. In conjunction with Penn State’s College of Liberal Arts and Graduate School, the philosophy department provides incentives to students who apply for external funds to support their work abroad.

We are currently working on establishing strong institutional relationships with a number of international universities so that study abroad will be integrated into the structure of the graduate philosophy curriculum at Penn State.
