Study Abroad

The Department of Social Sciences offers undergraduate students diverse opportunities for real-world archaeological fieldwork and research, international experience, and professional development.

If you are ready to take your education abroad, consider the Study Abroad program. Study abroad typically varies from one semester to one year in length. The benefits of international study and travel include intercultural awareness, sensitivity, and communication skills, as well as exposure to different geographic regions, perspectives, and cultures of the world.
