The Long-Term Impact of a Short-Term Study Abroad Program: Perspectives on Global Citizenship
Berg, Todd M. Vanden; Schwander, Lissa
Journal of Education and Learning, v8 n4 p18-31 2019
This paper explores the long-term impact of a short-term study abroad program on alumni of the program years after having taken the course. Through using a mixed measure survey, the data reveals that short-term study abroad programs can have a significant and direct impact on the lives of alumni. The specific program considered has impacted alumni choices of international tourist destinations, activities alumni participate in while traveling abroad, as well as the choices alumni make concerning lodging while traveling abroad. In short, after participating in a short-term study abroad program, alumni have developed a global citizenship identity.
