How does studying or interning abroad fit with the Ramapo Honors Program?

Ramapo College Honors Program students are encouraged through a distinctive and diverse curriculum to pursue intercultural, international and experiential learning in their field of study. Participating in a Study Abroad program as an honors program member during your time at Ramapo College will allow you to become a global citizen.  Experiencing life in other countries and cultures, developing foreign language skills, broadening your worldview, and making lifelong friends while earning college credit are just some of the ways students benefit from their time abroad. Many students use Study Abroad to prepare for graduate school and future employment. Most importantly, students remember and value their study abroad experiences for the rest of their lives.

Students in the College Honors Program who enroll in a study abroad program that is at least 4 weeks long may substitute one study abroad course for HNRS 220 or HNRS 320. Course substitutions for semester length study abroad programs will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
