Study Abroad

Hanover's seven study abroad programs are designed to enable you to master the requirements of an increasingly global career world. All our partnership programs feed directly into your Hanover degree, while providing you with unusual and rewarding cultural opportunities. Hanover does not charge any additional fees for these life-changing programs. You can select from the following semester-long immersion programs:

"People do not often have the opportunity to see an entirely different world; I had three opportunities to do so. Each one of them offering experiences that has shaped my outlook on the world in varying degrees."

Hilary F. Tollefson '14

Hanover College has long-standing relationships with the universities in these countries. Faculty selected the partnerships with a view to academic rigor and compatibility as well as the possibility of rich and diverse cultural experiences. Credits and grades transfer to Hanover and become an integral part of your Hanover record and transcript. Moreover, you can also arrange a self-designed program through a different university in a country of your choice. The Office of Study Abroad will be happy to assist you in identifying and choosing an appropriate and rewarding program.
