Why Study Abroad?
Most students who have participated in a study abroad program will tell you that it is a transformative and rewarding experience. Whether the program takes place in the summer or over the course of a full semester, it can help you expand your worldview, enhance your language skills and professional opportunities, and connect you with people and travel to places that are well outside your normal routine. And, such programs can also help you earn credits towards your degree.
