Having the opportunity to study abroad as a health science major will allow students to experience the global health practices from different perspectives. Use this opportunity to grow as an individual and as a professional in the health field. Whether you are taking General Education courses or courses more specific to Speech-Pathology, the benefit will always outweigh the costs. Another option may be to experience study abroad through Service Learning or Internship opportunities. 

 

Academic Advice

  • Department input requested
  • Courses specific to Speech-Language Pathology are a little harder to find compared to more general courses. It is highly recommended that you study abroad sooner than later and focus on General Education courses and lower level AHS courses to keep options open (if the ones below do not interest you). The first two years of courses offer a lot more flexible options for study abroad. 
  • Consider fulfilling your General Education Issues requirement abroad. Find out how!

Restrictions

  • Department input requested.
  • Courses will be reviewed on a case by case basis through the course equivalency process.

Keep in Mind

  • Once you have selected a program, be sure to meet with your adviser at least three months prior to departing for your program.
  • Be sure to explore both GVSU and External options by browsing the Program Suggestions below. Students are not limited to GVSU study abroad programs.
  • There are several opportunities to intern and/or volunteer while abroad.
  • Students are also able to fulfill General Education requirements abroad, including their General Education Issues requirement.
