Study Abroad: The World is our Campus
Study abroad opportunities are available for all students and can last from a week to a year. With good planning, study abroad can help you gain valuable international experience while completing your degree on time. Funding resources are available, both through the Department of Horticultural Sciences and through the Study Abroad Programs Office.
Study abroad programs give students a first-hand view of another country and culture. With today’s global economy, an international perspective is more important than ever before for those entering the workforce. Students can earn core curriculum credit, elective credit, internship/research credit, or transfer credit from a foreign university depending on the details of the program.
Not sure if you want to study abroad? Talk to students who have done it. An active study abroad mentor program is available to help you make your decision and begin planning. Check out the helpful links at the top of the page and if you want to learn more, complete the contact form or speak with your advisor to get started.
What Students are Saying:
“Of the many lessons I learned during this trip, the most significant was the need for sustainability. This broad concept can be applied to multifarious aspects ranging from occupation to daily life. With the struggle for resources that our culture is currently encountering I think that people who hold an understanding of sustainability will be crucial in the workplace.”
