International Programs

Why Participate in International Opportunities at UF? A better question is: Why not take advantage of international opportunities at UF?

Whether you are planning to go to grad school after graduation or start your career; whether you’re part of our programs in the Schools of Art + Art History, Music, or Theatre + Dance; whether you are fluent in a second language or are interested in taking your first steps towards learning about another culture—study abroad is for everyone. When arts students return home after participating in a study abroad program, they describe their trip as a life-changing experience and they want to go again. By participating in study abroad or other international programs, students experience:

  • Personal Benefits – broadened perspectives, new personal identity
  • Career and Professional Benefits – first-hand international experience, global perspective
  • Academic Benefits – critical thinking, hands-on learning in and out of a classroom environment
