World economy, world-wide learning

One of the advantages for Blugolds in the economics program is the tremendous access to study abroad opportunities that include a full semester of credits in the major. That is not true of some majors, which make it a bit harder to add this life-changing experience to the degree plan.

UW-Eau Claire students have multiple options for learning abroad, some as part of an exchange program, some as a standard enrollment overseas, and there is even an option for a semester at sea. Here are a few of the options available to economics students in this current academic year.

Details for economics options abroad

Studying abroad in Japan has had changed my global perspective view. It's a great experience to study in a different environment especially when it is not in your native language, I was able to build up my confidence through study abroad by speaking Japanese language to the local people. Nothing is impossible, if you never try, you'll never know!

One little gem in the Blugold study abroad menu is the Semester at Sea, which takes students on a world tour while earning credits in on-board coursework.
