Study Abroad in YOUR major



Why study abroad?

"There is so much more to life than the normal routines we all get caught up in. When you purposely put yourself in an uncomfortable position, a whole world opens up and opportunities appear left and right. This experience is truly [magical], exciting, and fun filled! The best part of the trip was meeting and learning from people all over the world. I was able to interact with British professors, meet international students, and live with different customs." -- UC student, United Kingdom
