Study Abroad

Notice for Fall 2021 Semester

Husson University has decided to cancel any, and all study abroad programming for the Fall 2021 semester in an effort to protect the health of our students.

We will reassess the possibility of reinstituting the study abroad program for Spring 2022 at a later date. The spread of the coronavirus nationally, and internationally will determine whether this programming can be reinstituted for 2022.

Getting Started

In order to get your study abroad experience started, you will need to research programs, consult with your academic advisor, and sit down with Husson’s study abroad advisor to discuss your interests and make a plan.

Once you have researched some possible programs and narrowed down your choices, you will need to carefully review the application process and requirements for each program. Pay close attention to deadlines – which are generally set in October (Spring semester), February (Summer), and March (Fall), while some deadlines tend to vary.

 

Choosing a Program

Before choosing a study abroad program, carefully examine your interests and what you hope to gain from your experience.

  • How long do you wish to study abroad? (Summer or Fall/Spring semester)
  • Is it better for me to take a semester abroad in the fall or spring? (Speak with your academic advisor sooner rather than later!)
  • Do you hope to learn a foreign language or improve your proficiency in a language?
  • Is there a part of the world you have always wanted to see?
  • Would you prefer an urban or rural setting?
  • Would you enjoy living with a host family? Or would you prefer a dorm or apartment?

Programs

Husson University currently maintains a partnership with two of the most reputable study-abroad providers in the world - - Council on International Education Exchange (CIEE) and Academic Programs International (API). Both CIEE and API offer programming all over the world and coordinate all aspects of the experience to include academics, housing and weekend excursions. The current arrangements with these two organizations also allow students to easily transfer credits towards their Husson degree programs and to use their current financial aid package towards the cost of the experience.

Students may search for study abroad programs by region or country, by the semester desired or by degree field.

Students can also choose to study a semester as an exchange student at Kookmin University, our partner university in Seoul, South Korea.
