When you study abroad, you open yourself to a wealth of learning experiences. Study abroad and study away programs plunge you into everyday encounters with difference and discoveries of similarity that expand your horizons, deepen your critical thinking skills, and offer practical lessons in intercultural relations.

Study abroad also helps your employment prospects. From 2006-2009, when only 49% of undergraduates reported finding a job within one year of college, 98% of students who had studied abroad reported finding jobs. And students with study abroad experience reported starting salaries 25% higher than the general student population

The Anthropology Department strongly supports study abroad and study away programs. The Chief Departmental Advisor, the Chair and your faculty mentor will be happy to assist you in applying for any of these study abroad funding opportunities.
