STUDY ABROAD

Why Study Abroad?

After studying abroad, most students never view their education in the same way again. Most return home with a greater vigor for academic pursuits and a renewed interest in lifelong learning, one of the most important aspects of a liberal arts education.

Launch your career through internships abroad. They are a great way to experience local culture in the workplace and improve language skills.

Studying abroad helps participants understand their own culture and biases better.

Students who study abroad make life-long friends, both international and form the U.S. These same individuals are more likely to seek out a greater diversity of friends long after their study abroad experiences are over.

Students who study abroad have a greater confidence in themselves, both professionally and personally.
