TROY Abroad

Studying abroad provides both faculty and students quality-learning experiences that increase students' knowledge on an array of issues, advances their critical thinking, tolerance, and understanding of cultural diversity. Studying abroad helps students to gain international awareness, global competency, and to better compete in the worldwide job market. It aids young graduates and professionals to aptly function in multicultural settings and the constantly changing environments of a globalize society.

Students return home with lasting memories, a more cosmopolitan understanding of their surroundings and their own belief systems, and improved capacity to function in multicultural settings. Typically, studies abroad help students to advance their self-confidence and critical thinking that are important factors in gaining access to work opportunities, job interviews, and work performance.

Faculty members who accept the challenges of leading study abroad programs do a great service to the nation, Troy University, and their students, and deserve praise for all their efforts.
