These pages are currently under revision, and may not have a complete list of programs. Please contact Hannah Nevitt to explore all program options.

The following programs offer significant coursework and field immersion opportunities for Education. This is meant to highlight a variety of programs by region; please note there are many more available beyond what is listed here and this is not a guaranteed list for credit transfer. Students will still need to meet with their departments to discuss fulfilling degree requirements.

After you decide on a program and the courses you will take abroad, you must meet with your advisor to complete the EdAbroad Departmental Academic Advising Form.

Things to Consider.

Advising Info

Please see advisors for information or assistance in discussing the transferring of study abroad credits to your Major or Minor.

Please Note: Since many Education majors are “tracked” or “lock-step” once you declare, students interested in study abroad may consider going abroad during their Sophomore year, to complete GURs or a combination of coursework so as not to be limited to summer only options after declaring.

Students must meet with an Advisor to complete the Departmental Academic Advising Form.

Things to Consider

Consider an International Studies Minor to add an International focus to your degree.
