Study Abroad Opportunities

Studying abroad provides opportunities for students to immerse themselves in diverse cultures and learn by experiencing different ways of life around the world. A summer or semester abroad makes it possible for students to learn first hand about values that people of other countries hold important, as well as enhance their understanding of how global problems are viewed and how world problems are addressed in other regions of the world.

The Office of Undergraduate Education coordinates the Study Abroad program at Rensselaer. Students who are in the process of earning the Certificate of Civic Engagement and Social Responsibility who are planning to study abroad are advised to contact the CESR office in advance of departure to discuss their unique opportunity to focus on their experience for their capstone project.
