All Sociology and Criminology majors are strongly encouraged to incorporate study abroad into their undergraduate education. An understanding of the world is crucial for today's students, and by studying abroad, students will gain an appreciation for cultures and ideas different from their own.
Program costs for education abroad vary depending upon the program and location. Scholarships are often available to help defer the costs of studying abroad. Enrichment funds from the College of the Liberal Arts are also available for students. If you're interested in these funds, please visit the information page for more information and to complete the application form.
If you have questions about studying abroad, contact the department advisers, or the Education Abroad Office for more information. The department also offers students an opportunity to study abroad at the University of Ghana in Legon, West Africa. Criminology students may also be interested in the summer program in the Netherlands.
