Study Abroad


Dorothée Mertz-Weigel, Director, International Education Programs


Study abroad programs sponsored by Armstrong and the University System of Georgia provide students with the opportunity to study abroad while earning academic credit toward completion of the degree requirements at their home campus. Armstrong has in recent years offered summer study abroad programs in Argentina, Belize, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, Mexico, Spain, and the United Kingdom, while the University System of Georgia offers summer study programs in countries around the world: Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Costa Rica, England, Estonia, Ethiopia, France, Germany, Italy, the Ivory Coast, Japan, Mexico, Spain, and Tanzania. In addition, semester and academic year study abroad opportunities are available in more than 45 countries. Contact the Office of International Education for the current list of offerings. Studying abroad provides the opportunity to gain appreciation for the cultures and institutions of other peoples, facilitates the development of relevant career skills, and contributes to personal maturity, a sense of independence, self-knowledge, and confidence.

Study abroad programs are open to all undergraduate and some graduate students; however, certain programs may require the completion of prerequisites. Students in the University System of Georgia who are eligible for financial aid may use that aid toward study abroad programs. A limited number of USG Stars scholarships are available. For further information, contact the Office of International Education. (912.344.3128).
