The Fulton School and The International Century
The 21st century has been called by some the international century, and indications that such is indeed the case are all around us, and impossible—as well as unwise—for us to ignore. Constant connectivity, 24-hour news cycles, increased international travel, recent geopolitical shifts, and omnipresent social media platforms have all come together to make all of us global citizens. How fully and how well we are able embrace that citizenship, and contribute to the 21st century’s new, global landscape, depends in large part on how well we, through our studies and experiences, learn about and engage, preferably firsthand, the world beyond our borders.
The Fulton School of Liberal Arts, long a trailblazer in all things international at Salisbury University, has moved aggressively in recent years to become an international, globalized school, through both its many programs and course offerings on campus and the growing number of study abroad programs and opportunities around the world that it offers to both students and faculty. Fulton’s embrace of the international century is ongoing, as each year the School very deliberately adds more to its international lineup. The School also strongly encourages, supports, and facilitates both students and faculty to take full advantage of the wide range of international opportunities both on campus and abroad.
The present website serves to introduce students and faculty to the many current—and growing—international opportunities offered through the Fulton School. Students with questions about these opportunities should either email or call the contact person or home department mentioned in the description for each opportunity, or contact Salisbury University’s Center for International Education (SUCIE) at 410.677.5027 (regarding the various SU study abroad programs listed on the linked SUCIE website). Faculty with questions about potential international opportunities for them should contact Dr. Louise Detwiler, Associate Dean, Fulton School of Liberal Arts, or 410.677.5384.
