Why Study Abroad?

  • To develop global skills. From problem solving to cross-cultural communication, international experiences give you the opportunity to develop and refine important skills in a unique and enriching environment.

  • Employers value study abroad. In a recent study, 61 percent of employers agreed that international experience is a beneficial experience and is valuable on a resume.

  • To set yourself apart. Only one in ten American students study abroad. It will require work on your part, but an international experience can set you apart from the majority of your peers.

  • Individualized program options. People go abroad for lots of reasons – unusual academic offerings, professional development,  volunteer opportunities, and more!
