Why Study Abroad?

Study abroad offers many advantages, including increased academic performance, to enhanced empathy skills, to increased knowledge about global systems. It provides an avenue for students to grow and change in ways otherwise unavailable. A carefully selected program can add depth to a student’s major by offering courses that are different but complementary to those at Southwestern. Students gain new perspectives on their major field of study and develop interests they never knew they had. Study abroad can indeed be life changing, or in other words: students can indeed change their lives by studying abroad.

SU-Approved Study Abroad Program Providers

Program providers are organizations that facilitate study abroad for college students. In essence, they serve as the liaison between the U.S. university and the foreign institution while simultaneously providing support to the student. While there are numerous program providers out there, SU approves a specific set of organizations for semester/full academic year study abroad plus a specific set of additional organizations for summer term study abroad.
