Studying abroad during the academic year for a semester or the full year is an excellent academic opportunity. During the period of a semester or an academic year, you can become comfortable in a new culture, complement your Brandeis academic experience, and learn many things about yourself.

There are many ways to study abroad, so why not spend the year or semester exploring your academics in new ways while still making progress towards your Brandeis University degree? Some of these study abroad opportunities include:

  • An academic internship
  • Completing major/minor requirements
  • Fulfilling CORE requirements
  • Improving world language skills or completing a world language requirement in that culture
  • Engaging with another culture

Come to a study abroad event, review approved programs, and meet with an advisor to learn more about your options.
