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.

In addition to living in England, my time abroad enabled me to travel to many other countries and experience a multitude of cultures. I feel strongly that this has contributed to my development of a more well-rounded and informed worldview, which I am able to bring into the classroom as both a student and a teacher. Although the prospect of going abroad might sound daunting, I cannot speak highly enough of the experience. Education Majors CAN go abroad... and they should. - Tessa 2012
