Encouraging Study Abroad
A student’s first step in learning about study abroad is to attend a Study Abroad General Information meeting. Meetings are held throughout the semester and the schedule is available at our website. After attending an information meeting, students may make an appointment to meet with a study abroad adviser.
Students in any major can study abroad. Science and engineering (STEM) majors will need to plan early. Most programs are available to students with a minimum of a 2.8 GPA. Some programs require a certain level of foreign language proficiency, but many programs in non-English speaking countries offer classes in English.
Students often have misconceptions about studying abroad. As an adviser you can help dispel some of their concerns. To help, we've put together a list of common misconceptions and realities about studying abroad.
