Get your passport ready!

We consider studying abroad an integral component to any education. The experience students receive complements

their own development, exposure to other cultures, opportunities, and economic and social systems. Review student experiences abroad and how they never regretted it. All majors support the inclusion of an abroad experience. Whether the study abroad experience is either a short-term, term, or full year program, incorporating the courses into your undergraduate degree is possible.

Faculty-Led Short-term Study Abroad Programs

Some faculty have even developed their own specialized short-term programs. If you have never traveled abroad, a short-term study abroad program is ideal!
