Global Education Opportunities

Global education is an important part of a Bryn Mawr girl's education. It helps fulfill our mission of preparing students to be responsible and confident participants in the world, to cultivate respect for diversity and to engender a sense of responsibility to the broader community.

Why Global Education?

Global Education instills a deeper understanding of and appreciation for cultures and peoples around the world. It provides the chance for our students to continue to experience a diversity of opinions, experiences and backgrounds, which is an important part of our commitment to building diversity. It helps our students understand the complexities and interconnectedness of the global society in which we live by allowing them to assess their own culture (which includes religion, language, values, music, literature, economy, etc.) with that of another country. Most of all, global education provides an opportunity for students to get to know themselves and understand their place in this world in a way that can only be achieved by stepping outside of their comfort zones.
