Affiliated Institutions

International Involvement

You have the opportunity to learn and explore the world. In the International Field Study course, you are part of a small group on an educational adventure. Through instructor-guided study tours, you experience concepts discussed in class. And because all study abroad courses are partially subsidized by the University, the opportunities are within reach. You may also be eligible for additional travel grants ($1,500 to $2,500). If you participate in one of our international partnerships, you can spend a semester overseas at a foreign university. Here on campus, international faculty will also be coming to you. We are pleased to welcome visiting professors who can share their academic expertise and culture.
