Our Team

Study. Develop. Engage.  The Pitt Study Abroad team is here to help you find a study abroad or study away program that will benefit you academically, grow you professionally, and allow you to interact with your host communities in meaningful and responsible ways.  And we hope you'll have some fun along the way.  

So, where do you get started?  It's always a good idea to talk to your academic advisor during the process to determine what courses make the most sense for you to take overseas.  What do we handle?  Helping you find the program that meets those requirements.

We recommend getting started by coming to our Walk-In Advising Hours.  You can meet with a Peer Advisor or a member of our staff to talk through your goals and get recommendations before diving into the website.

If you know who you need to talk to, you can find their contact information below.
