For English majors and minors, studying abroad is an excellent way to get valuable experience, set your resume apart, and fulfill degree requirements. Did you know you can study abroad for a similar estimated cost of attendance as studying at PSU? Many programs have specific scholarships for Pell Grant students, transfer students, students who are working, etc. You can also use your financial aid towards your study abroad program or your Veterans Benefits! Check out all the programs that work particularly well for English Majors by clicking here. 

Can't be abroad that long? Check out these two short-term programs which are excellent for Writing majors or minors!
