What is Study Abroad?
Studying abroad is an opportunity for students to take courses in another country and still get class credit. Most study abroad opportunities are offered at the collegiate level. Students learn much more through study abroad than what they would typically learn in the classroom. Personal growth and academic growth are both included in this type of experience.
At Texas State, students can study abroad in over 60 countries around the world. With such a vast variety of places they can go, many students find themselves in locations they had never thought of before, and learn more than they would have sitting at a desk on campus.
In addition to seeing with their own two eyes what they would normally only learn about in textbooks and online, students learn how to get out of their comfort zone, think outside the box, creatively problem solve, and how to handle any situation that comes their way in a timely manner.
The map on the right indicates the continents in which Texas State students visit for their study abroad, and if you hover over a specific continent, you will see how many students studied abroad in that location during the '14 - '15 and '15 - '16 academic school years.
