Studying abroad is required for the global and international studies major. Students may choose to participate in a faculty-led academic experience for a few weeks or for a semester or full academic year as an exchange student at one of several partnership universities abroad.

Either way, the language and cultural immersion experience is life changing! Advisors will work with you to assure that coursework abroad counts toward your degree. There are also many study abroad scholarships available around campus.
