Brandywine Global Programs, travel collage 


Welcome to Penn State Brandywine Global Programs, delivering distance education courses with short-term travel to destinations worldwide since 1995. Our courses are available to students at any Penn State University location. Each course in each program includes pre-travel and post-travel coursework to be completed on an independent study basis, working with the instructor through distance education technologies, on one’s own schedule and at one’s own pace. Travel components of the courses are 6-9 days in length, taking place during breaks in the University’s academic calendar. We aim to bring international academic and immersion experiences within the financial reach of as many Penn State students as possible. Accordingly, travel arrangements through Celestial Voyagers tour agency are designed to be very affordable, and scholarship opportunities are available, including the Brandywine Global Programs Award.

"I would really recommend study abroad to other World Campus students, because it allows you to meet and connect to other Penn State students and explore a whole new country at the same time."  Read more about his experience >>
