Studying abroad will set you apart. Fewer than 10% of U.S. undergraduates can claim an experience abroad as part of their university education. By studying abroad, you will gain insight and new perspectives on yourself, your academic discipline, your own and other cultures. Such international insights are increasingly sought after by employers in our global society.
Study abroad is open to sophomores, juniors and seniors. Most students study abroad during their sophomore or junior year, though many seniors do as well. If you plan well, studying abroad will not delay your graduation. The best time to go abroad depends on your progress through the psychology major. Talk with your academic advisor for guidance.
The following programs are a particularly good fit for psychology majors (all sites have psychology courses in English):
- Murdoch University - Perth, Australia
- Southern Cross University - Coffs Harbour Campus, Australia
- Lancaster University - Lancaster, England
- University of Winchester - Winchester, England
- Laurentian University - Sudbury, Canada
- University of Ghana - Legon, Ghana
- University of Malta - Msida, Malta
- Massey University - all campuses, New Zealand
- University of Aberdeen - Aberdeen, Scotland
- University of Glasgow - Glasgow, Scotland
- University of Stirling - Stirling, Scotland
