Step 2: Meet with your Adviser to confirm your plan

It is important that you go over the 8 semester plan and have it confirmed by your faculty adviser. If your adviser is not in the department you plan to major in, you should discuss your plan with a faculty member in that department as well. At the end of these meetings you should have a clear idea on timing and academic objectives for your study abroad.

Step 3: Investigate programs that fit your plan and meet with the Director of International Programs to discuss programs and application process

Using language, country and academic discipline search for programs. This will identify specific faculty-approved programs that meet the criterion you've chosen. You can then look at each one carefully to be sure that they have the curricular offerings you need, taught in a language you have mastered so that you can move to the next step and begin an application.
