Environmental Studies majors are encouraged to study abroad, and our students have attended a wide variety of programs all over the world. From Denmark to New Zealand, Mongolia to Madagascar, the ES Department has worked with the Center for Study Away to identify programs that span a range of environmentally related disciplines and topics.

Start planning early

You don’t have to know where you want to study to begin thinking about how and where a semester away might fit within your academic program. Students are encouraged to talk with their advisors, familiarize themselves with the application process, and work with their Center for Study Away advisor.
