In year three, it’s time to go exploring.

Want to study Spanish in Costa Rica? Or business strategies in China? With options that range in length from two weeks to a full semester or longer, we’ll help you find the program that’s exactly the right fit. And you don’t have to go as far as Paris or Beijing—Coker’s variety of domestic study away programs gives you the option to experience the diverse cultures within our own country.

With options including internships, field study, interim courses, and more, the choices are endless. But no matter where you choose to go, you’ll gain the confidence to adapt to unfamiliar situations—a skill that will benefit you for a lifetime.


Study Away is designed to take students from the Coker campus and immerse them in a different cultural setting. This may involve study abroad or study in places in the U.S. that provide a contrast to the student’s usual surroundings. The purpose of Study Away is to help students develop confidence in their ability to adapt to different environments and skills to interact with people who are different from themselves. Students can complete this experience through traditional study abroad, coursework, field study, or organized group excursions (abroad or domestic).

Coker provides many program options to accommodate all students’ academic goals, schedules, and budgets. For more information on Study Away options at Coker, visit the Center for Engaged Learning.
