A summer, semester, or year abroad can be a wonderful, life-changing experience. Studying abroad will enhance your undergraduate program of study, immerse you in another culture, give you opportunities to improve foreign language skills, allow you to earn academic credit and to travel to other countries. Most importantly, studying abroad will help to make you a global citizen by opening the doors to intercultural understanding. As our world becomes more connected, international experience and intercultural competence are becoming increasingly important, and those of you who have studied abroad will find your experiences invaluable in furthering your education or finding a job. The staff at the Office of International Programs can help you select a study abroad program that is appropriate to your field of study and personal interests and needs. We will also assist you in preparing for your study abroad experience.
For detailed information about studying abroad at Ithaca College, please read through the Ithaca College Study Abroad Guide. This will take you through all of the information you need to know about your options for studying abroad and how best to plan for the experience.
Once you have read through the guide, feel free to schedule an appointment with an adviser in the Office of International Programs to discuss your options and help you get started with the application process.
