Getting Started

Education abroad encompasses a variety of international experiences – study, internship, volunteer, research, and service learning programs.

Education abroad opportunities are available for all students – freshman through doctoral candidates. International programs can be as short as one week or as long as a full year. Students may choose to be part of a group or to pursue an individual program.

An education abroad experience will broaden students’ intellectual and personal horizons, help them navigate in different environments, practice or perfect a language, and build a resume to help broaden career options.
