A whole new world

Expand your worldview, make new friends, learn a new language. On top of all of this, there’s something that only traveling the world can do — for students, it builds confidence, offering a sense of “I can do anything” independence. You’ll accomplish life-changing experiences all while developing a stronger resume and fulfilling your graduation requirements. It’s a win.

Experiential Learning

Austria. France. Japan. These are just a few of the places you can see while studying abroad. But remember, these journeys take planning, so we have a lot of resources and counseling that help our students find the right time, right place for their study abroad experience.

Standing Out

The total number of our students participating in study abroad programs is above the national average. Are we inspiring students to take full advantage of the opportunities that await them? Are we setting up conversations and experiences that prepare students for a worldview in real-time? Or are we encouraging students to fulfill both their personal and professional growth goals? The answer is yes to all.

There are various study abroad programs available. We have developed these programs so you have plenty of options to choose what works best for you.
