Teaching around the world

The common thread across different cultures around the world is education. Passing on knowledge to the next generation is an important and revered duty. Start on an adventure that will lead to the discovery of how these different societies educate their youth. Your journey will stimulate personal growth and give you a whole new perspective on how educators reach their students. So pack your bags, bring an open mind and go create memories and relationships that will last a lifetime.

Due to the typical progression through the education studies department, please plan on studying abroad or participating in National Student Exchange (NSE) your first or second academic year.

When I discovered UWEC’s teaching abroad program I clutched onto that opportunity and never let go.
