Can I fit in study abroad or NSE? 

We're not going to sugar coat it — each of the various degree plans offered in geology is pretty loaded, without a whole lot of room for adjustment. But have no fear, with careful early planning through the Center for International Education and your department advisor, it is possible to make it work. By this, of course, we mean the traditional semster abroad experience, enrolled in classes at an international university. Don't forget the many international travel and research opportunities available to geology students by way of collaborative student-faculty research and even research internship positions abroad. It can happen for you too!
