Students have the possibility to study in over 60 countries, regardless of their major or minor course of study. It allows students to complement and enhance their classroom instruction by experiencing the culture and language of a host country. Through the Office of Study Abroad and Outreach, students can participate in a wide variety of educational programs located in more than 60 countries worldwide.
