The Department of Sociology has a long-standing commitment to international study and offers a wide range of opportunities to participate in a study abroad experience. Globalization of economies, political structures, and communication has made it critical for students to understand the complex problems that confront contemporary societies.

Students participating in international study gain concrete skills in intercultural communication, nation-specific knowledge, and an awareness of both self and others in the global context of the 21st century world.
