Study abroad is a strategic opportunity. Ask yourself: 

- What do I want to get out of the study abroad experience? 

- How will a semester abroad help me develop academically, intellectually, or professionally?

- When should I plan to go abroad? (Fall semester of your Junior year is recommended)

A semester abroad can offer you:

1. Foreign Language Acquisition

Sofi Torres studied German in Berlin

2. Further training in your field

3. A new academic subject to complement your on-campus study
