Study Abroad

The World Is Your Your Classroom

Study abroad programs give students the opportunity to experience the world in a non-traditional setting. In comparision to aquiring knowledge from books and Internet queries, students navigate new landscapes that opens their eyes to culture, history, a different languages. Studying abroad also opens the door to personal growth and discovery too. When students choose to go abroad, they learn to say ‘hello’ in a foreign language, develop lifelong friendships with people from around the world, eat exciting new foods, boost their independence and self-confidence, and stretch the parameters of their comfort zones.

Sarah Dinning Marketing Major Abroad
"Being able to immerse myself in the German culture and language for a semester was such a transformative experience for me and helped to strengthen so many aspects of my professional and academic life. I truly feel like I learned how to communicate so much more effectively and meaningfully after my time abroad - something I know will help in the business world. While classes are important, nothing can repace an immersive culture and language experience like studying abroad."
Sarah Dinning '20, Marketing and German major at Universität Tübingen
