What's Happening


INTERNATIONALIZATION

Internationalization at McMurry University is a comprehensive process. In addition to student mobility (study abroad and international students), we intend for our curriculum and programs to prepare students to live, lead, and work in an increasingly globalized world. Dr. Barbara Hill of the American Council on Education explains that globalization is simply the reality that people, ideas, goods, capital, services, pollution, and diseases and more cross borders on a daily basis. Internationalization is higher education’s engagement with this reality.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

McMurry currently has students from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, Kenya, Korea, Mexico, Nigeria, the Philippines, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, and Scandinavia.
