Students from all majors may find that studying or working abroad enhances their educational experience. You may be among the UA students determined to go abroad to study, intern, volunteer, launch a career, or all of the above. If you choose to study or intern abroad, think of how the opportunity relates to your career planning and preparation. If you have a career (or several) in mind, research the desired skills and traits and imagine how the experience abroad might help you develop those.
If you are considering studying abroad, meet with an Overseas Study Coordinator in the Overseas Study Resource Center located in the Capstone International Center (135 B.B. Comer).
During your study abroad experience, you likely gained skills and experiences that relate to your career prospects.
