Never traveled abroad and worried about taking the first step?  

When you travel abroad with classmates and a UW-Stout professor, you'll earn Stout credits and gain valuable career experiences. A study abroad education is a great way to distinguish yourself with employers and have your resume stand out among the others. You can even travel during the WinTerm and Summer semester!

  • Establish a global network for future jobs or internships
  • Gain access to unique course offerings that apply to your UW-Stout degree
  • Broaden your intellectual & personal horizons

Interested but worried about cost?
