Study Abroad

You can broaden your experiences by studying in classrooms around the world as part of the Education360 program. These faculty-led experiences - in countries such as Italy, Norway and Nicaragua - allow you to observe in schools and shadow teachers to see how culture, society, politics and global forces affect education and schooling across the globe.

You will have immersive experiences ranging from living with local families, opportunities to learn the native language and visiting schools, museums and landmarks. In addition to enrolling in classes that fulfill your major requirements, you can also volunteer, intern and work abroad in fields related to your academic, professional and extra-curricular interests.
