Get your passport ready!

CLA considers studying abroad an integral component to the liberal arts or any education. The experience students receive complements their own development, exposure to other cultures, opportunities, and economic and social systems.Study Abroad in Greece Studens

The majority of CLA majors support the inclusion of an abroad experience. Whether the study abroad experience is a long or short term program, incorporating the courses into your undergraduate degree is possible. Some CLA faculty have even developed their own specialized short-term programs.

The UMD Study Abroad office provides an extensive list of long and short programs across the globe. The office collaborates with CLA departments in making the studying abroad experience streamlined and productive. Students are encouraged to seek out answers to this lifetime opportunity.
