Studying abroad is one of the best ways to acquire global and intercultural skills. Research shows that students who study abroad have greater self-confidence and maturity, earn better grades, and graduate from college at higher rates. Take advantage of the opportunity to earn credits towards your major, minor, and GEP requirements while also engaging in what many students call the most meaningful experience of their education.
