Penn State New Kensington is an active participant in Penn State Global Programs. We provide students with a variety of opportunities to study in foreign countries for varying periods of time—a week, a summer, a semester, or a full year.
Our objective is to offer our students a broader education than can be obtained through classroom experiences. To help foster this mindset, Penn State sponsors international trips, and provides courses with an embedded international component.
In 2007, Penn State New Kensington began a “Country of Focus” program that provides students with international cultural enrichment through classroom experiences and a variety of extra-curricular events, including speakers, dance and music performances, exotic dining opportunities, and movies. The entire campus community has the opportunity to participate in the selection of each year’s “Country of Focus”.
For more information about other study abroad opportunities, contact the campus Global Programs coordinator, Dr. Jyotsna Kalavar.
