Teaching Study Abroad & Study Away

Teaching Study Abroad And Study Away

Are you considering redesigning a course for a study abroad or study away experience?

If you just want to put your toe in the water of incorporating internationalism in your course, then visit our international media page. A simple classroom activity is to have students research a course topic in the English language papers from around the world listed here and then reflect on how the world view compares to what they obtain from media at home.

Ready to go abroad or on a trip within the USA? information can be found from the Office of Study Abroad and Global Learning or from the Study Away program.

Here are some examples of Study Abroad syllabi from other faculty.
