Students make the decision to attend a university for a variety of reasons; economics, exciting new challenges, the opportunity to study a chosen field of interest, and, hopefully, achieving a career providing a rewarding lifestyle. These changes include expanding your world view by studying abroad.
Why should you study abroad?
In what may be the only opportunity for most to see the larger world, students often decide to study abroad for a variety of reasons. Some will study abroad to be immersed into a culture and to learn a language. Others will go to study a specific discipline and compare the difference in models, while some will go to learn more about themselves.
Research has shown that students who study abroad report higher levels of engagement with peers and home institution, statistically get hired at faster rates upon graduation, etc...
Midwestern State University offers students in all disciplines the opportunity to take advantage of academically based programs in France, Spain, and England. Language based programs in Spain and France are available during summer I. The program in London during summer II offers numerous classes in a variety of academic disciplines. Students interested in the sciences can participate in a short course in central America focusing on biology, botany and environmental science. Scholarships and financial aid are available for all programs.
Now is the time to seize the opportunity to see some of the world you have only dreamed about. The experience of study abroad will be beneficial now and for your future and all students are urged to consider this unique opportunity while they attend the university.
