Not sure how to get started in the study abroad process?  Attend a First Steps Workshop to learn what it means to study abroad, how to select a program, components of an application, and how study abroad can advance your academic, professional, and personal goals.  Topics covered in the presentation include:

  • academics
  • housing
  • program duration/type
  • locations
  • costs

You will have the opportunity to ask questions of our student staff, called Program Assistants, who have been through the study abroad process.  Whether you're deciding if study abroad is for you, assesing program options, or have started an application, we welcome all students to learn more about what study abroad has to offer and how to get started!


Can't attend the First Steps Workshop? Watch the screencast on the First Steps webpage.
