Study Abroad for Undergraduate Students

To excel in your future studies and career, you must possess not only a deep understanding of global and regional issues but also the ability to communicate, negotiate, and lead in a cross-cultural environment. These important characteristics are learned through the combination of academic, professional, and cultural experiences both at home and abroad.

The Elliott School encourages students to gain those experiences by adding a truly international component to their studies. A study abroad experience will enhance your understanding of varied perspectives on international, global, and regional issues with firsthand observation and study.

With approximately 300 programs in 60 countries around the world, students have a wide range of study abroad options. Students are encouraged to visit the Office for Study Abroad website to learn more. Students should also consider liking GWU Office for Study Abroad and Student Exchange Facebook page for updates and information about study abroad information sessions.

Students interested in pursuing a study abroad program are also encouraged to review the How to Look for Study Abroad Programs and the How Study Abroad Courses Transfer online workshops. These presentations will teach you the basic concepts to exploring study abroad program, options and the transfer credit process.
