  1. In March 2017, Penn State Brandywine Global Programs traveled to the south of France to expand our studies in Linguistics, Human Development, Management, and Kinesiology.

    Students in Linguistics 001 (The Study of Language) documented their travels on social media.

    Learn more about future Brandywine Global Programs trips at bw.psu.edu/global-programs or email Dr. Evan Bradley at evan.d.bradley@psu.edu.
