Welcome to the Education Abroad Homepage!  Studying abroad is one of the best ways to acquire global and intercultural skills.  Research has shown that students that study abroad have greater self-confidence and maturity, have better grades, and graduate from college at higher rates.  Take advantage of the opportunity to take UMBC courses that apply to major, minor, and GEP requirements while also engaging in what 85% of students call the most meaningful experience of their undergraduate education.
