There are many ways to be a student.
At Dragons we guide university-aged students to far-reaching locations to expand the boundaries of the classroom. Our approach to College Study Abroad Programs is to provide high-quality academic experiences in unconventional places. In addition to rigorous academic exploration, we learn by doing, travel like locals, live with families, and get dirty for the sake of discovery.
Take an alternative path to study abroad through cultural immersion, regional and intercultural studies, independent study projects, language study, and a small-group experience with Dragons.
Explore our semester and summer program options in Bolivia, China, India, Nepal, and Peru.
Our study abroad programs are dynamic educational adventures. We bring academic studies to life in unpredictable ways, allowing us to better know ourselves and the world we live in.
At Dragons we believe in harnessing an experiential education approach to academics. This means exploring the limits of where we learn, embracing meaningful challenge, listening humbly to local knowledge, and leaving room for spontaneity.
There’s been a growing dialogue about the value of an education in the 21st century. Learners are increasingly asking for concrete sets of global competencies and leadership skills before they join the workforce, or before they take on myriad global challenges that can best be addressed from a place of experience and empathy.
It is hard to gain these skills and perspectives in traditional classroom alone. We are here to offer a different path.
Whether you are new to Dragons or Alumni, we offer many ways to connect and stay engaged…
