Getting Started

The Spiegel Center for Global and International Programs at Roger Williams University welcomes you and is pleased to help you begin your journey in exploring the world. 

Our world has become increasingly inter-related and experiencing globalization while gaining intercultural perspectives is necessary for success in our communities and our workplace. Study Abroad is relevant and meaningful for students in any academic discipline. Yes, that is correct! Study Abroad is beneficial, no matter what your academic major is.

Students who participate in a meaningful international experience develop skills, attitudes and characteristics that can significantly enhance academic goals, career path, and personal life. Study Abroad is commonly referred to as an astounding, life-changing experience, above and beyond the initial expectations of the participant. An experience that will challenge you, change you, and motivate you... Study Abroad is well worth the time, money, and effort students put into it.

Study Abroad is not just for the rich or privileged, it is not just for those fluent in a foreign language, it is not simply a vacation. Study Abroad is for everyone who wants to explore the world around them, gain cultural insights, grow personally, understand academic topics from an international perspective, and develop a global perspective.

The Spiegel Center is your guide and resource center in realizing your study abroad goals.
