Study Abroad

There are few points in time when you may ever be able to say – “Hey, I am going to live in Berlin for six months!” That’s why many departments and programs in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences have created UA faculty-led study abroad programs to share their expertise and field experiences with interested undergraduate and graduate students. These programs also allow students to earn UA credit for the courses they take and provide many students with the opportunity to engage in independent research projects, service learning, and international internships.

While there are hundreds of study abroad programs open to you, there are many benefits of studying abroad on a UA-Faculty led program. To learn about these benefits, students should meet with their academic adviser and a study abroad coordinator.

Students who participate in these SBS-faculty led programs develop close and lifelong relationships with UA faculty and their peers.  They are transformed personally, academically, and professionally by their experiences.
