A UNCG student in good standing may spend a summer, semester or academic year abroad in several ways.
UNCG professors regularly lead student groups overseas. Over the past few years, groups have gone to such countries as Costa Rica, Greece, Spain and the United Kingdom. These programs generally involve five or six weeks of supervised travel and study, followed by an additional three weeks of independent travel.
All study abroad activities are carefully supervised by the UNCG Study Abroad Committee, which is comprised of faculty members and administrators with considerable experience in international education. The Committee is constantly working to expand study abroad options for UNCG students, and to make them available at reasonable cost. The Committee may recommend to the student's department that up to 30 semester hours of credit be earned for one year's study overseas.
The Office of International Programs, in addition to handling most other administrative matters affecting study abroad, publicizes the various programs and advises prospective participants. Those interested in study abroad are advised as a first step to contact the OIP, 112 Foust Building, 336/334-5404, or visit our Web site at: www.uncg.edu/ipg/oip.
