Non-GT Study Abroad

International Academic Projects

Participants in International Academic Projects are engaged in academic or research work that will be partially or wholly completed outside of the United States. This might mean going to a foreign university with your Faculty Advisor to conduct research, doing an independent study project, performing research in the lab of a faculty colleague abroad, etc. Talk to your Faculty Advisor about contacts and ideas.
