As an honors university, UMBC offers a variety of great programs to enhance a student’s Undergraduate experience and add to what they are learning in the classroom. UMBC is an institution committed to creating the “honors experience” for all of our students and this includes opportunities to participate in research and hands-on learning experiences, be involved with internships and co-ops and to study abroad (among other things!).
The chance to study abroad is becoming an increasingly popular opportunity for students at UMBC. Through the UMBC Study Abroad Office students have traveled to over 200 countries all throughout the world. Our students will study abroad for a semester, a year, a few weeks during the summer- whatever works best for their undergraduate career. If you’re considering studying abroad make sure to stop by the Study Abroad Office for one of their Study Abroad 101 information sessions. I also suggest checking out the great story on our UMBC homepage about a few study abroad programs our current students recently completed.
