Study Abroad

Environmental Studies students have the opportunity to travel with faculty on both Winter Term and Semester Abroad programs. Participation in International Education programs offers the chance to immerse yourself in a different culture while building your resume, developing a greater appreciation of the global community, learning new skills, and enhancing your campus based learning. There are many great options to choose from, many traveling to unique environmental destinations around the world. Here are some of the recent Winter Term programs that fulfilled the environmental perspective graduation requirement.
