Are you ready for a life changing experience? Studying abroad can be one of the most enriching experiences a student can have while in college. Wright State provides students with the opportunity to study in more than 40 countries on 6 continents.
Wright State offers students three types of study abroad programs: Ambassador Programs, Exchange Programs, and Third Party Provider Programs.
Ambassador Programs provide an opportunity for students to study for short periods of time (2 – 4 weeks) during the summer intersession and are led by Wright State faculty members.
Exchange Programs allow students to travel to WSU partner institutions. While many of the programs require the student to take classes in the foreign language of their host country, there are some programs that are conducted in English. Students have the option of studying abroad in the summer, for a semester, or a full year and programs are available for most majors.
Third Party Provider Programs are programs offered by professional organizations and allow students to study for a summer, semester or an academic year. Through this option students can study on six continents in 40 countries and in most cases without prior language experience.
Full academic credit is provided for all courses taken abroad through a WSU-sponsored Education Abroad program. This means that the classes you take can count for major/minor requirements or general education electives.
The cost of study abroad programs varies and will depend on the type of program and location. With Wright State approved programs all financial aid can be applied toward the cost of these programs.
