Study Abroad

Students are strongly advised to study abroad for at least a semester (if not a year!), to gain international experience and to strengthen their foreign language skills.  Recently, students have studied and worked in Ecuador, Jordan, South Africa, Brazil, Senegal, China, Macau, France, and India, among other countries. Under faculty guidance, International Studies students win top national awards including the Fulbright Fellowship and Boren Scholarship, which provide funding for international projects, study and research. 

Engage the world

International Studies students are highly encouraged to study, volunteer and work abroad, to engage diverse cultures, societies and politics, while leaving a positive footprint.  Living abroad is a wonderful way to gain language and cultural fluency and acquire new perspectives of the world.

The New York Advantage
