Studying abroad prepares Pitt-Johnstown students to take their place in the world by teaching cultural awareness. It will also teach you self-awareness and can prepare you for leadership roles in a global community. Studying abroad is a life-changing experience that you can pursue after completing your freshman year.
An international education experience may be the first time that you are truly away from home and familiar surroundings. While studying in a foreign country isn't always easy, most students agree that the benefits of giving up their familiar environment for a short period of time far outweigh the decision to complete their entire undergraduate degree on campus.
While abroad you can develop your language skills, enhance your understanding of your major by taking classes not offered at Pitt-Johnstown, and make degree progress.
Often studying abroad can be the best part of your college experience, but it does require planning and a bit of work before you get there.
The Study Abroad Office staff is here to help you learn what you need to do to make this opportunity happen!
