Here are a few things you should think about while your looking for a potential Study Abroad Program:
For questions about integrating study abroad into your specific program(s) of study it is best to start by talking with your academic adviser. Relating general questions to the Study Abroad office can't hurt, but as far as specifics relating to your own academic goals and interests, you should start by meeting with your adviser.
These are a few things you should sit down and think critically about on your own. Bouncing ideas off friends, parents, or professors is also a good idea. The Study Abroad Office can also provide networking opportunities with students who have gone on programs in the past.
Consider the human and cultural geography as well as the physical geography and climate.
This is something you want to talk about with parents/guardians (or anyone who might be helping you pay for Study Abroad) as well as the Financial Aid Office. You can check out program costs and coverage on each program webpage under the 'Cost Sheet' link on the bottom right. Don't forget to take exchange rates, flights, and the time of year you want to go abroad into account. You should always factor in costs related to getting passports and/or visas (including travel to international consulates in NYC) when thinking about program funding.
The Study Abroad Office is open for advisement. Email one of our Study Abroad Advisors, Emily Froome (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Sam Cardamone (email@example.com) to schedule an advisement appointment or stop by during walk-in advisement hours.
