Welcome to the NWOSU Study Abroad Program!
Study abroad at Northwestern Oklahoma State University provides opportunities for students and lifelong learners to travel internationally for the ultimate in experiential learning! Today, it is important and critical to have a global perspective on the world in which we exist--wherever one lives or whatever one does. No better time exists than now to see the world!
Two program options are available in the Study Abroad program. These options allow a choice for individuals who are completing their degree programs at a university AND for those who want to travel with the university and learn more about another country, culture, and its people.
1. College Credit - Students enroll in specific college courses designed for study abroad, typically for 3 hours of credit. Other courses may be added upon academic approval and need. NWOSU professors teach the study abroad courses.
2. Continuing Education/Professional Development - Individuals who wish to travel internationally may participate through continuing education. This option provides the opportunity for individuals to travel with the university and participate in its program designed also for lifelong learners.
Each specific study abroad program and the itinerary are designed so that there is a wide range of activities appropriate for those taking college credit and those participating as continuing education. As a result, participants grow personally, educationally, and professionally. Memories and friendships are made that last a lifetime for those who participate in this collegiate experience.
Are YOU ready for the experience of a lifetime?
