Students that plan for study abroad early have the easiest time fitting international courses into their academic program. General education courses are often the most flexible international course options, although some academic majors can access an abundance of new applicable course options. If you think study abroad is for you, visit the Study Abroad Office as soon as possible.
Students applying late in their academic program may want to look closely at faculty-led programs from their academic major or opportunities based in English-speaking nations. Non-English speaking countries offer fewer English courses, although language students, depending upon their proficiency, may have access more options.
