The Kent School International Exchange Program started in 1990. Since that time Kent students have studied in Germany, Italy, Hungary, South Africa, Argentina and Russia. Students receive lectures on social welfare programs and interact with students formally and informally from our host universities. Visits to social welfare agencies differ in each country but have included agencies for: elderly, homeless, substance abuse, hospitals, child welfare, community centers, and numerous others. Time is provided for students to experience the culture of the host country as well as historical and tourist attractions.
Since 1990 over 150 students from Germany have visited Kent School as part of our international exchanges and we have had 11 Fulbright student scholars to study full-time at the school who have received the MSSW degree.
The Kent School has cooperative arrangements with the following universities that provide for enrolled students to travel and study abroad with Kent faculty:
Catholic School of Social Work, Munich, Germany
School of Health and Social Work, University of Debrecen, Hungary
Belgorod State University, Belgorod, Russia
Eichstatt University, Eichstatt, Germany
