Challenging the myth!
Can education majors study abroad? Of course they can!! So why does the myth persist?
Education studies faculty encourage majors to study abroad. Last year, five education majors studied abroad in Bath, England, and Copenhagen, Denmark. Sophomore students are studying abroad right now.
Next fall, five junior education majors will be studying in Bath, Copenhagen, Italy, and Ghana.
Education studies majors study abroad the fall of their junior year or the spring of their sophomore year. Plan early during your first year. Come in to talk to Joanna Zangrado, acting department chair of the Education Studies Department, in PMH 219.

Going abroad was one of the best decisions I have ever made, and was a highlight of my Skidmore career. Studying in Bath, England was an amazing experience, and pushing myself to fully immerse into another culture was eye opening and life changing. Through my abroad experience, I was able to grow as an individual, a student, and a future educator. I became more independent and learned how to embrace my surroundings, taking advantage of all that Bath had to offer. I met so many amazing people through my program and through living in Bath, who were different, interesting, and dynamic. I felt stimulated and engaged while living and studying in England in ways that surpassed what I was capable of experiencing back home. - Tessa 2012
