Study Abroad

Studying, working or interning in another country is a highlight of the academic career of many students. For the coming year, the College of Education and Health Professions is planning six COEHP Study Abroad programs. Study Abroad programs include academic credit, but no less important are the personal and professional growth you will experience.

“We learned a lot about being inventive. The nurses and doctors make so much of what they have, it was awesome to see. They were really willing to teach us how they do what they do and why.”
