Global Ed Expands Into Wales, New Zealand and Hungary

Gordon’s Global Education Office (GEO) has introduced three new approved programs, bringing to more than 40 the total number of opportunities for study abroad.

Linguistics majors can now dive into syntax and lexical functional grammar at New Zealand’s world-ranked University of Auckland, located in the country’s largest commercial hub (pictured above). At Auckland’s School of Cultures, Languages and Linguistics, students have a unique opportunity to discover New Zealand’s heritage by studying the language and culture of the indigenous Maori people.

Across the pond in Wales, chemistry majors can now study at another coastal school—Cardiff University, one of the U.K.’s leading universities. Students will learn from world-class researchers and benefit from Cardiff’s state-of-the-art facilities, while also exploring Welsh history and culture through courses like “From King Coal to Cool Cymru: Society and Culture in Wales.”

Computer science majors can engage in Hungary’s long tradition of creative computing at Aquincum Institute of Technology (AIT). Taught by globally-acclaimed scholars, the program integrates design, entrepreneurship and humanities with foundational and advanced application computer science courses. Students also take a two-week Hungarian language course.
