Global Education Program

The mission of the Global Education Program is to foster global citizenship by providing the opportunity for all UNE students to study abroad for a semester or during breaks. 

Our program enables you to choose from courses in the sciences, humanities, social sciences, business and the arts. The courses are taught in English, but you are also encouraged to study Arabic, Spanish or French. Our offerings include the lab science courses needed to complete many of the undergraduate programs at UNE. Through the Global Education Program, you gain a global perspective without experiencing any delay in the curriculum required for your major.
