Global Perspective

Gain a Global Perspective

The world is getting smaller. In order to understand it, you’ll need an open mind and the willingness to learn from other perspectives.

Whether through study abroad, internships, coursework, student clubs, or service—you’ll have a wealth of opportunities to shape your worldview. Here, learning doesn’t stop when you leave the classroom because Notre Dame educates global citizens prepared to take on the world’s biggest challenges.


Living abroad taught me invaluable lessons about how other parts of the world live, and through that, the great beauty in the similarities and differences between us all. I was pushed out of my comfort zone and now have incredible places I can call a second home.
