Study Abroad

Undergraduates have the chance to participate in a Center for Global Education study abroad program at a wide range of destinations from Italy to Thailand, Kenya to Peru.

“I learned so much about myself, so much about life in general,” said one study abroad participant, “and I was able to check off some of those lifetime goals: swim in the Caribbean, spend a night in a rain forest, travel internationally, see leaf-cutter ants, and teach in an underprivileged city.”
