Global Learning Opportunities

Pursue your interests in an international locale with a semester abroad or with a short-term Dialogue of Civilizations course. Focus on critical issues facing students and peers both locally and globally while also working towards your CAMD degree.

We consider global learning a critical and transformative element of the academic experience—providing students the opportunity to study at a university abroad, work for an international company, perform service projects in foreign countries, or conduct global research. Our students develop a deep understanding and appreciation of their host countries and come away with a fresh perspective of the world.

Dialogue of Civilizations

The Dialogue of Civilizations program takes CAMD students around the world to experience different cultures through intensive summer programs in more than 10 countries. Participants meet with government leaders, local groups, and students for a one-on-one process of growth and discovery.

More About Dialogues

A unique experience for a select group first year students, is an opportunity to spend your fall semester studying abroad at one of our five international partner locations. CAMD students earn a full semester of academic credit while immersing themselves in a new culture before transitioning to the Boston campus to continue their studies at Northeastern in January.
