At Arizona State University we are forging a new role for higher education in the world by engaging with people and issues locally, nationally and internationally. Our university is one of the top producers of U.S. Fulbright winners, who teach and study abroad each year. We are proud to provide our students and faculty hundreds of international study, research, internship and service opportunities in nearly every corner of the world.
Through meaningful educational programming, ASU students are engaging with people and issues around the world, learning global business competencies and developing broader world views.
The Study Abroad Office serves as a hub for students and faculty interested in engaging globally through credit-bearing activities around the world, offering more than 250 programs in 65 countries. More than 2,500 students study abroad annually with support from more than $1.4 million in scholarships and grants. Students earn ASU credits and grades while abroad – allowing them to maintain progress toward timely degree completion – and gain valuable skills to help them succeed in the workforce and face tomorrow’s most pressing global challenges.
ASU is also proud to be the state’s top-producing school for Peace Corps volunteers. These volunteers develop cross-cultural, leadership, language, teaching and community development skills and make a difference through meaningful service that tackles the most pressing needs of people around the world.
Among the innovative programs at ASU are language studies with the ASU Chinese Language Flagship Program, School of International Letters and Cultures and the Critical Languages Institute, field schools in tropical biology, global health, anthropology/archaeology, and student-driven projects, such as GlobalResolve.
