Why Study Abroad?
International experience is one of the most important components of a 21st century education. By studying abroad, participants gain cultural sensitivity, foreign language skills, and a global perspective. This translates to competitiveness in the job market, as employers are increasingly looking for workers who have international skills and experience. Research shows that globally competent students have a diverse and knowledgeable worldview, comprehend the international dimensions of their major field of study, communicate effectively in another language and/or cross-culturally, exhibit cross-cultural sensitivity and adaptability, and continue global learning throughout life.
Study Abroad Destinations and Programs
