Penn State Worthington Scranton proudly boasts its active participation in the Penn State International Studies Programs.  We provide students with a variety of opportunities to study in foreign countries for varying periods of time -- a week, a summer, a semester or a full year.

Our objective is to offer our students a broader education than can be obtained through classroom experiences.  To help foster this mindset, we have developed an international minor that will guide the interested students toward the achievement of their academic goals with a focus on the larger global community.

Contact Dr. Beatriz Rivera-Barnes, Interim Coordinator, International Programs, at bur3@psu.edu for more information.
