Being a participant in one of GSW’s study abroad programs is one of the best ways to gain an understanding of another country, its people, culture, and language. It is also a great way to earn credit towards your degree during a Maymester, summer session, full semester, or full year program.
If you are considering studying abroad, GSW’s Office of International Education (OIE) can help you with program information, applications, passport and visa issues, course selection, financial assistance, and other issues facing the student interested in Study Abroad. The OIE invites you to browse this site to inform yourself of programs being led by GSW faculty, programs at other University System of Georgia institutions that may be of interest to you, and programs outside the USG system offered by other American and overseas universities.
Our objective at the OIE is to contribute to internationalizing the GSW campus. Our goal of having 25 percent of GSW graduates experience study abroad by 2015 will help to achieve that objective. The study abroad experience may be as a student in a traditional Maymester, summer, or longer program, as a participant in a Habitat for Humanity or Fuller Center for Housing international build, as a participant in a short Spring Break trip arranged as part of a course requirement, or other creative way to expand understanding of the wider world in which we live and are more and more integrated.
