In 2006, the Departments of Social Work and Human Development and Family Studies began a summer language and culture immersion in Costa Rica every other summer. Beginning with Summer 2013, this program is sponsored by the School of Health and Human Sciences and is open to all HHS graduate and undergraduate majors.
The UNCG Department of Social Work has a 20+ year exchange program with The Glasgow School of Social Work. Every other year, a UNCG faculty member and a group of UNCG social work students go to Glasgow Scotland to study with social work students and faculty.
Also, through the UNCG International Programs Center (IPC) a UNCG student can study abroad for a semester or year. Financial aid can be applied to Study Abroad, and IPC is also able to provide travel grants to all UNCG students through its Endowment for International Programs.
