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.
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." Mark Twain
