Study Abroad & University Studies Requirements

Two- & Three-Week Programs in Summer 2020:


Earning University Studies credit abroad is a great way to maximize your time overseas! Students can take coursework towards their major or minor and also fulfill UNST requirements (including the Capstone requirement!) Connect with your Academic Advisor and your Education Abroad advisor to ensure you're choosing the best program to fit your goals. Your Education Abroad advisor can also help you explore ways to use financial aid, scholarships, and grants to finance your travel!

"I learned that I need to take advantage of every opportunity that is given to me, and by stepping out of my comfort zone, I have gained resilience and more confidence in interacting with people in different environments."

- Stacie, Sociology Major, earned her Capstone in Costa Rica
