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 learn or improve foreign language skills; allow you to earn academic credit; travel to other countries; and gain skills that future employers will value. 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, personal interests and needs. We will also assist you in preparing for your study abroad experience.
