The world is literally full of options for studying abroad. See the Office of Global Engagement website for more information.
Courses taken at a university abroad may be applied to the International Studies major, when approved by the Director. Students can choose a shorter study abroad experience (typically through a faculty-led trip over the summer or university holidays) or a more immersive experience (typically in the form of a semester of study at a foreign university).
