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. Review student experiences abroad and how they never regretted it. All CLA majors support the inclusion of an abroad experience. Whether the study abroad experience is either a short term, term or full year program, incorporating the courses into your undergraduate degree is possible.
CLA Faculty-Led Short-term Study Abroad Programs
Some CLA faculty have even developed their own specialized short-term programs. If you have never traveled abroad, a short-term study abroad program is ideal!
