The Study Abroad Programs Office supports Texas A&M University's commitment to develop global leaders through transformational opportunities abroad.
We engage students, faculty, and staff to participate in high quality international experiences and prepare the A&M community for a diverse society.   

Study abroad encompasses a variety of international experiences, including study, research, internships, volunteer, and service learning programs. Study abroad opportunities are available for all students, freshmen through Ph.D. candidates. The various types of study abroad programs can be as short as a week or as long as an academic year. Students can be in a large group or study on an individual program.

Our study abroad statistics can be found on the following pages: Study Abroad Overview and Time to Degree

Studying abroad will broaden students’ intellectual and personal horizons, help them navigate in different environments, practice or perfect a language, and build a resume to help broaden career options.
