Study Abroad Programs

Programs are approved with our learning goals in mind and they may be added to or removed from the list as more appropriate opportunities emerge. Programs not approved need to be petitioned. We expect all programs to offer significant opportunities for immersion, which we define as:

Immersion: active participation in a culture markedly different than one's own, which leads to critical reflection, empathy, and perspective shift.
