Simpson currently offers three excellent study abroad programsto Germany, England and Nicaragua.
The addition of a semester in Australia would not only increasechoices of destinations but would allow Simpson students theopportunity to earn credits for their major while abroad.
Anytime the advancement of higher education can be done in anenvironment that broadens a student’s cultural exposure it shouldbe taken full advantage of.
Curtin University is considered one of the best internationalschools, and if Simpson can secure positions for its students toreceive this unique opportunity, every effort should be made tocomplete this transaction.
If a student wishes to study abroad for a semester withoutachieving fluency in a foreign language, London is their onlyoption.
The addition of Australia to the docket gives students anotheroption.
Simpson needs to do all it can to see this programestablished.
The pros outweigh the cons, and faculty visitors should voteyes.
