dc.description.abstract As the world becomes more interconnected, the need for graduates to have the skills and confidence to communicate with individuals from other cultures is important. This study explores the impact of international travel on Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) students’ development of intercultural competence. The paper consists of a literature review in addition to primary research using data from a survey completed by fifty-one (51) SNHU students who participated in international experiences during their time at the university. The analysis of survey data reveals that international travel adds value to a student’s ability to communicate with individuals from other cultures. The findings of this research also show that valuable intercultural competence is caused by the amount of interaction with the locals in the host countries; not the amount of time spent abroad.
