Our Team

Pitt study abroad advisors will set you on a path for the biggest adventure of your life.  There are lots and lots of details to put in place and decisions to make:  from big picture ideas and initial planning steps to in-depth information on a specific place or program.  Our study abroad advisors have been there and done that; they have the answer to all your questions. 

We strongly encourage you to meet with an advisor early in the semester before you plan on going abroad.  Together you and your advisor will identify the best program to fit your academic plan and career goals.

Come into Pitt Study Abroad soon… the world is waiting for you!
