Study Abroad

Open your eyes to the world beyond campus.

We tend to look at things from our own perspective and experience. But as the world grows more connected through technology and travel, it’s essential for us to understand cultures beyond our own.


Study abroad is part of a complete education that allows you to experience and understand other cultures, so you are better prepared to work and serve no matter where you are. Several majors and minors, including international business, intercultural studies, and languages, require study abroad. Language students sign a language pledge, committing to speak the target language throughout their experience in order to attain near-native fluency by the end of the program. If you don’t know another language—don’t let this stop you from studying abroad! There are also study abroad programs that are taught in English, giving you an opportunity to learn about yourself while learning about the world around you.

Read on to hear about the many options you have to go abroad!


Study Abroad

Is Study Abroad for you? We hope so! The first step is to discuss the options available to you with the Program Coordinator of the Institute for Global Studies and your Academic Advisor. They can help you determine which programs best match your personal goals and academic requirements. In preparation for your meeting with an advisor, we suggest that you browse through the currently approved programs in Argentina, France (Dijon) or Spain.
