Study Abroad


Study Abroad

We believe studying abroad gives students the opportunity to visit new places, experience different cultures, broaden their perspectives and enhance their life experience while simultaneously earning credit towards their degree. Our students are able to leave the classroom and travel with faculty to a distant site to study diverse topics. If you're a student at UW Tacoma, check out the options available below; your academic program may be offering a study abroad course, and it could be an excellent opportunity to meet degree requirements while having a more diverse, in-depth experience than you could here on campus.


Additional Opportunities

Opportunities to study abroad are also available to UW Tacoma students through the Seattle and Bothell campuses. To search for additional options, you can visit the following websites:
