Number Crunch: Participation by Program

Global Education has seen over a 20% increase in overall study abroad participation from the 2013-2014 to the 2015-2016 school years. This increase is especially apparent when looking at the types of programs offered by Global Education. Millersville courses/trips abroad and internship opportunities represent two areas of growth over the past few years.

Global Education has just introduced a new category of programs: Affiliated. Affiliated programs are generally run by an organization or program provider that has an agreement with Millersville University. Students participating in these programs take their courses at the Affiliates’ partner institutions or centers with other American and international students. Programs are offered during the fall, spring, and summers semesters.

For more information on Affiliated Programs and other program categories, please visit the Global Education website.
