Study abroad – rethink your classroom!
Both international and domestic students are encouraged to explore the world through study abroad opportunities. Study abroad experiences help students develop intercultural and second language competencies – skills in demand by a growing number of employers. Experiences in another culture broaden consciousness in a way that textbooks can’t, and contribute to a greater understanding of the world’s cultures, politics and geography.

What students are saying...
"Although working at the hospital was at times quite challenging, it was without question an invaluable opportunity. Steps have been made in the direction of becoming a better clinician; I am for example, considerably more confident in my clinical abilities and this is a big personal accomplishment." ~ Sarah Potvin, 2013 Mexico Field School participant."
