Welcome to Penn State Brandywine Global Programs, delivering distance education courses with short-term travel to destinations worldwide since 1995. Our courses are available to students at any Penn State University location. Each course in each program includes pre-travel and post-travel coursework to be completed on an independent study basis, working with the instructor through distance education technologies, on one’s own schedule and at one’s own pace. Travel components of the courses are 6-9 days in length, taking place during breaks in the University’s academic calendar. We aim to bring international academic and immersion experiences within the financial reach of as many Penn State students as possible. Accordingly, travel arrangements through Celestial Voyagers tour agency are designed to be very affordable, and scholarship opportunities are available, including the Brandywine Global Programs Award.

"What I thought was a minor addition to my resume became a great talking point in most of my interviews and helped land me the job. Employers are looking for a standout candidate in a tight job market. Representing Penn State abroad helped me demonstrate initiative, a desire to learn, and provided the international exposure firms are looking for in a new hire."
