Internationalism is a core value of Macalester College. Macalester has a long tradition of providing significant opportunities for students to build an international and intercultural perspective into their college education through international or domestic off-campus study.

The context

Study away at Macalester goes back over 60 years. About 60% of Macalester students study away before graduation, compared to about 14% of U.S. undergraduates pursuing bachelor's degrees. Almost all Macalester students who study abroad go for at least one semester, compared to less than half nationwide.

More information on U.S. students studying abroad is available through the Institute of International Education's Open Doors Report
