Global Perspectives - SIE Complex

We are now just south of the Evans Chapel, near the unmistakable blue tower of the SIE Complex, home to our Josef Korbel School of International Studies.

This stop brings me to another reason why I chose DU. Over 77% of our undergraduate students study abroad, and they can choose from 150 program sites in 52 countries on every continent besides Antarctica. We value a global perspective in the classroom, but our study abroad program allows you to make the world your classroom. With the Cherrington Global Scholars program, which is exclusive to DU, many of the additional costs associated with studying abroad - including airfare to and from your site - are covered through your tuition. Students pay the same cost for the term they go abroad as they would for any other quarter at DU, eliminating financial barriers that students might face. To qualify for the Cherrington Global Scholars initiative, students must be a Junior or Senior in good standing and have a GPA of 3.0 or higher. 

I studied abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina where I lived with a host family and became fluent in Spanish. I have a friend who went to Morocco to work on their Arabic, a friend who traveled to Thailand to learn about sustainable agriculture, and a friend who studied in Prague to continue learning about business. With such a wide variety of programs for students to choose from, you can find one that can fulfill exactly what you are looking for in a study abroad experience. Whether you take classes for your major, minor, or you use the time to delve into a new culture, the University of Denver will help you find a program that fits your needs.

Our next stop is Johnson McFarlane Hall, diagonal from SIE further down the trail, on the corner of of Iliff and High Streets.
