See the world

English has historically been among the departments that shows high numbers of majors and minors participating in study abroad, with an average of 20 students studying around the world each year. For the 2015-16 academic year, English majors could be found hitting the books in England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Italy, Korea, South Africa, Costa Rica and Japan. These enriching academic experiences are the kind of high-impact practices that set UW-Eau Claire apart from similar institutions.

UW-Eau Claire has an institutional commitment to providing interested students with the chance to study overseas, and the English department is a perfect example of this goal.

Another institutional goal is to increase our 4-year graduation rate, and through the efforts of both the English department and the Center for International Education (CIE), taking advantage of this opportunity does not need to delay your graduation. We can help you do both!
