About seventy percent of students study abroad during their time at Elon. Many faculty members from Elon’s Department of Political Science and Public Administration have taught study abroad courses:
- Chalmers Brumbaugh directs the Winter Term Costa Rica course.
- Betty Morgan and Sharon Spray have taught the Winter Term London course.
- George Taylor and Laura Roselle have directed the London semester program.
Recently, two departmental students spent a semester in Ghana, taking courses at the University of Ghana and interning at the Center for Democracy and Development, a prestigious advocacy and think tank that promotes democratic practices in Africa.
Majors have also had semester study abroad experiences in London, Dublin, Australia, Ecuador, Spain and France.
