How Do I Choose?

Think about the type of experience you are looking to get out of studying abroad.

  • Are you looking to master your fluency in another language? Learn a new one?
  • Do you need to take classes in your major or earn credits towards your degree?  Do you have electives that you have sitting around and want to use by exploring courses outside of your major?
  • Experience a new country or go somewhere less commonly traveled?

Determine what you want to get out of studying abroad by determining your goals. It’ll help clear up the clutter on so many different programs and help you focus on what best fits you and your interests.
