Study Abroad

Step outside your comfort zone. And your time zone.

Will your life’s journey take you around the globe? We have amazing adventures where you can travel for an entire semester, for your summer break or even just for a short "intensive" trip abroad. Traveling out of the country gives you a new perspective on the people and cultures of the world, as well as experiences and memories to last a lifetime.

Class Excursions

If you’re studying the business and culture of China, India and Russia, we have short-term exchange programs to visit the country’s historic locations, collaborate with foreign business leaders, and experience international lesson plans firsthand.

Semester-Long Programs

Travel for a full semester and immerse yourself in language and culture.

  • Prague, Czech Republic

    (Fall semester, even years) – Dive into the history, culture, and language of the Czech Republic. Explore the vast array of architectural building styles from Romanesque to Gothic and Baroque to Art Nouveau as you make your way through the “City of a Hundred Spires.” And be sure to catch the procession of the Twelve Apostles at the astronomical clock tower in Old Town Square.

  • Dublin, Ireland

    (Fall semester, odd years) – While exploring Ireland’s capital city, you’ll study Irish life and culture as you stroll through St. Stephen’s Green, soak up the history of Guinness and live on the edge at the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher.

  • Florence, Italy

    (Spring semester, even years) – Visit Michelangelo’s iconic statue of David while practicing the language firsthand for your Italian 102 exam. Experience local life and culture taking a spectacular Tuscan food tour or cruising through olive groves on a Vespa.

  • Cuenca, Ecuador

    (Spring semester) – Experience the interplay of contemporary and traditional culture in the country of Ecuador. When you’re not in class or volunteering at a local orphanage, you’ll have a chance to explore the historic area, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll visit to the Pumapungo archaeological site to learn about Ecuador’s indigenous people, and meet native birds such as parrots, toucans and raptors at the ruins of the ancient city of Tomebamba. And no trip to Cuenca is complete without a visit to the Mirador Turi for a bird’s eye view of Cuenca’s Spanish colonial architecture, complete with classic red-tiled roofs, set to a backdrop of the Andes Mountains.
