The Center for International Studies at Catawba College seeks to provide an international opportunity for every student. These learning opportunities are academically rigorous, professionally relevant and personally enriching. This is accomplished by short-term faculty led trips, intensive foreign language instruction and semester-long programs at international universities. International education connects Catawba College students to diverse world cultures and prepares our students for work and service in this increasingly interdependent world. This mission aligns with the Colleges mission to provide an education rich in personal attention, blending liberal studies with career preparation.

The courses are to be used by faculty members leading international study trips or students planning a study abroad experience. This planning is done in consultation with the Center for International Studies. The General Education Assessment and Review Committee must approve using these Topics courses for General Education credit. Please contact the Director of the Center for International Studies for more information.
