What is study abroad?
There are different routes to engage in a global experience while attending Park University. A typical study abroad experience might include a semester or a year abroad studying at one of our partner institutions, taking courses with locals or learning a second language. Other options include taking part of a summer school program, short term programs led by Park faculty abroad during spring break, fall break, Maymester or completing an internship abroad.
