Abroad for a Semester. Influenced for Life.

–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

It’s a big world out there, but it’s not nearly as big as it used to be. Today technology brings people together. This increased access to nations beyond our borders challenges us to broaden our worldview. At USF we are stepping up to that challenge with a dynamic International Studies Program focused on cultural immersion, global awareness and enriched life experiences. By partnering with universities in Greece, Korea, Puerto Rico and South Africa, we invite adventurous students like you to study abroad for a semester. Satisfy your global curiosity by applying to participate in USF’s International Studies Program. >>>>> Puerto Rico
