Studying abroad offers students the unique opportunity to not only enhance their linguistic competencies, but to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of a foreign culture. Through course work, extracurricular activities and the adventures of daily life in a foreign country, students will come away from their experience with a more complex and real world understanding of their host country and its culture.
All majors are required to complete a minimum of 6 units in an approved study abroad in a European country.
Information about other programs can be found at the SDSU Office of International Programs.
