Stretch Your Boundaries – Expand Your World

 


Why Study Abroad

Studying abroad will allow you to…

  1. See the world!
  2. Learn in a different setting
  3. Take in a new culture
  4. Expand your worldview
  5. Learn more about yourself
  6. Practice using a foreign language daily
  7. Find career opportunities and network with foreign companies
  8. Discover new interests, career paths, and passions
  9. Make life-long friends from all over the world
  10. Strengthen your candidacy for graduate school or employment

 

Studying abroad will force you to think cross-culturally and creatively adapt to a new way of life. Many employers and graduate school admissions committees look favorably at study abroad experience as the world of education and business requires international competency and cutting-edge technical skills.

 

What is Study Abroad?

Study abroad is 1 semester of off-campus study at one of our established partner programs that gives students an opportunity to develop intercultural communication skills and global awareness while living in a new place.

Study Abroad is NOT the same as the major immersion trips. Studying Abroad gives you the opportunity to get to know a new community and culture by building relationships and exploring independently.
