Global Education


Global Education

Journey to a new place—beyond the campus gate and outside your comfort zone. Go on a TREC with Drew.

Travel across the Hudson or around the world. Rethink assumptions from a new vantage point. Explore your chosen field—or an entirely different one—in a new context. Connect with other industries and cultures, and to where you want to go from here.

The Center for Global Education connects our undergraduate College of Liberal arts, Caspersen School of Graduate Studies and Drew Theological School to the world.
