The Clinton Institute Semester Abroad programme is a Spring semester programme of modules tailored for US-based students who wish to gain an international perspective on their own country. The programme consists of several modules which examine America’s global role and it provides students with an opportunity to closely study the perceptions and impacts of the US in another country.
“The Clinton Institute served as a home away from home for the five of us undergraduate students who partook in the Study Abroad Program this past year (2011). The professors and staff at the Institute were incredibly helpful and accessible, and they made us feel welcome and comfortable from our very first day to our last. The classes offered were intellectually stimulating, and being in class alongside students from all over the world led to very rewarding and interesting class discussions. In contrast to many other study abroad programs, the Clinton Institute offers undergraduate students the opportunity to learn in a small classroom setting in which conversation and interaction are encouraged, rather than placing students in huge lecture halls where they may get lost in the mix. The Institute also invites students to attend lectures from some of the most prominent scholars in the fields of American Studies and Media Studies. As an American Studies major, I gained a new perspective from my classes abroad that will influence my approach to my courses and thesis when I return to my home university. I felt very at home in the Clinton Institute community, and the education and experiences I got there were one of the best parts of my time abroad. Grace Loughney (Class of 2011)
