At home or abroad, UGA offers an array of Study Away opportunities for students to learn and experience, discover and explore. This fall the Franklin College will host its first ever Study Away Fair at Herty Field Tuesday October 23 from noon to 3 p.m. with light refreshments and representatives from numerous College based study abroad and domestic field study programs. 

 

“In growing numbers, Franklin College students are seeking to enhance their educational experience at UGA through study in immersive environments abroad,” said Martin Kagel, professor and associate dean in the Franklin College, “and rightly so, given the important role international experiences play in students’ cultural literacy and professional preparation. Equally significant are the domestic field study programs the Franklin College boasts, which also provide comprehensive learning opportunities, from the nation’s capital to the Rocky Mountains. We invite students to the fair to learn more about the programs available and discover which is the right fit for them.”

 

The UGA Office of International Education will also be present. Students are invited to spend time over ice tea and a sandwich with our faculty and program leaders, and find out more about the many opportunities and ways in which the campus meets the world.

 

Whether looking for a first study away experience or a complementary international or domestic program that enhances their campus coursework, students can find that next piece to their unique UGA experience at the Franklin College Study Away Fair. See you at Herty Field on the 23rd
