Study Abroad

Study Abroad

Studying away from Unity College is a wonderful way to expand the small school experience offered in rural Maine. Students can earn credit from most accredited institutions worldwide. Studying abroad can be completed throughout the semester, summer, or short intensive sessions. Students have also completed international internships.

Getting Started

The Study Abroad resources are available at the Career Resource Center located in the John Burwell Building. After consulting with Career Resource Center staff, students will be prepared to present The Study Away From Unity College paperwork (link to pdf document) to the Registrar’s Office for approval.
