Study abroad experiences allow you to learn about cultures and perspectives in a way that may not be possible on campus. Take classes or gain hands-on experience by completing an internship with an international company, contribute to a service-learning project with an NGO, improve foreign language fluency by immersing yourself in your chosen language, or conduct research with experts in your field.
Regardless of the experience you choose, you will build skills highly sought by employers: adaptability, flexibility, communication skills, intercultural awareness, problem-solving skills, and more. Considering only 10% of U.S. undergraduate students participate in an international experience, those who do so gain an advantage over peers in the competitive job market as well as in graduate and professional school applications.
With a variety of program types, lengths, locations, courses, and costs, you can find a program that fits your interests and will keep you on track for graduation.
