International study, research, internship, and service experiences are once-in-a-lifetime, life-changing opportunities with enormous academic, personal, and professional benefits. An experience abroad sets you apart from your peers, enhances your studies, and engages you as a citizen of the world whether you wish to learn a new language, fulfill requirements of your major, or simply focus on earning general elective credit.
If you are interested in a full semester abroad, start by talking with your adviser about your options and reach out to the Education Abroad office.
