Graduate Students

Graduate Options

Study Abroad is a great way for Graduate students to earn credit, build your resume, complete an internship, or do research. With proper planning and advising, Graduate students have opportunities to study or intern abroad. As with Undergraduate study abroad, Graduate students have the option of doing Faculty-Led programs, Partnerships, External programs or Internships.

Faculty Advising

We recommend that all students speak with a faculty adviser while planning their study abroad. Faculty advisers can help you choose what courses you should take, guide an independent study, or provide general advising regarding your particular program. Be sure to communicate with your faculty adviser to assure the smoothest study abroad process.
