Identity and cultural differences are very important to explore while you are considering your study abroad options, after you've chosen your study abroad location, and even important to continue to think about as you navigate a new culture. In this section, you will find a list of cultural and identity based topics to consider as you explore studying abroad. This is not a comprehensive list and if you have any questions related to an identity of yours or would like to see more information added, please talk to an advisor.

You can also dive further into cultural differences and adjustment through an on-line cultural training called "What's Up With Culture?". It's a self-guided course developed to support and enhance a student’s ability to make successful cultural adjustments both before going overseas and upon returning home from studying abroad.
