Study Abroad Programs for ATOC Majors
Studying abroad is often one of the most beneficial student experiences in college. The opportunity to freely study and learn about a new culture may be a unique opportunity in a student's life before they embark on a career after graduation. When immersed in a new culture and education system for an extended period, students gain insights into different ways of living and into their own ways of thinking. Employers and graduate school admissions boards look highly on students with these experiences since they have demonstrated independence, diversity, and intellectual curiosity. Education is the focal point of any study abroad trip, thus choosing the right school or program for you should be the most important factor in your decision process.

Organized programs such as the School for International Training (SIT) and the School for Field Studies (SFS) often have higher costs than those associated with enrollment in a foreign university.
