Mission Statement: Helping students explore the world

Vision Statement: To provide opportunities abroad for students to take advantage of in order to facilitate student development through enhanced intercultural competence and leadership skills that will mold them into engaged global citizens.



We have study abroad opportunities for every qualified student. Study abroad can last from a few weeks to an academic year. Students work with both their academic advisor and A-State’s Study Abroad Advisor to ensure that credits transfer back to A-State.


For an overview of the study abroad process, please review our presentation below.
