The College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences provides students with unique study abroad opportunities designed to offer life-changing international experiences. As the impact of our global economy grows, so does the need for employers to hire well-rounded citizens who can provide unique perspectives of the traditions, beliefs and values of other cultures.
Studying abroad will open your eyes and give you a fresh perspective on people and the world. When participating in one of our programs, you will go beyond the classroom as you enjoy formative experiences through hands-on learning. You will visit historic sites, meet new people, eat exotic foods and create lasting memories — all while taking courses that apply toward your degree.
UGA and CAES provide a multitude of study abroad options, from two-week adventures to semester-long exchange programs. Don’t let these opportunities pass you by!
Study abroad programs have three main costs: program fees, airfare, and tuition and associated fees. Many students think that funding a study abroad trip is out of reach and out of budget. Luckily, CAES has multiple resources to help students get the funding they need to take advantage of these once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
- The Ag Abroad Photo Contest recognizes student photography illustrating agriculture outside of the United States.
- The UGA Office of Global Engagement provides study abroad scholarship opportunities to UGA students.
Additionally, if you are eligible, you can apply your HOPE or Zell Miller scholarship toward tuition costs. Out-of-state students pay in-state tuition for study abroad.
It is never too early to start planning your study abroad adventure. For more information about our programs, contact the Director of Experiential Learning, Amanda Newquist, and the Office of Global Engagement. They can guide you through your options and give you the necessary information to have a successful experience. Also, be sure to contact your academic advisor about how participating in one of our programs can fulfill your degree requirements.
