Welcome to our Study Abroad programThis is an exciting time, one of which you will learn a great deal not only about other cultures and peoples, but also about yourself. You will have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with local cultures and traditions and develop a deeper understanding of global citizenship. In addition, realize that you are distinguishing yourself among an elite few in the United States. Only 1% of the United States higher education student population studies abroad. International experience, global awareness and foreign language skills are very important qualities to have in this new century and are very important qualities that employers are looking for.
