Study Abroad - Opening minds to a world of opportunity


Selecting a Program
Talk with your son or daughter about his or her interest in going overseas. It is best to start planning for the overseas experience in the first year of college.

Discuss and be involved in the decision of selecting the program. Think about

  • Length (summer, semester, year, or short-term)
  • Type (academic, work, internship)
  • Coursework (courses or electives)
  • Language requirement
  • Comfort with different cultures
  • Disability services (type, accessibility)
