An international experience like study abroad is considered an important tool for your future career, especially if you'll be working with people from other cultures.
Studying abroad while in college is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make.
The experience of living and studying outside the United States will enhance your life in many ways while you earn academic credits for the semester.
Top Reasons to Study Abroad
In addition to classroom learning, you will:
- experience personal growth by discovering new strengths and abilities
- develop leadership skills
- learn another language, if you choose a non-English-speaking destination
- expand your world view
- develop cultural competency by getting to know another culture firsthand
- gain a new perspective on your own country
- gain a career advantage -- most employers value a globalized education
