Studying Abroad

Studying in another country is an excellent way to improve your skills in another language. It also increases your cultural awareness and broadens your perspective, something that becomes more valuable to employers every year as our culture grows more international and as employment grows more global. Most graduate programs look favorably on study abroad as well.

Faculty from ELC offer various programs in international education, and their are many more opportunities as well. For more information, consult UMW’s Center for International Education.
