Study abroad programs are a fantastic way to see the world while enriching your academic and personal development. The School of Health Sciences hosts a short program during spring break focused on International Public Health and we are introducing a new semester exchange program with the Dublin Institute of Technology for Pre-professional Public Health or Environmental Health Science majors. Other study abroad programs for additional majors and countries are also being developed.
Spring break program
In this program students complete the course Contemporary Issues in International Public Health, which allows students first-hand experience with public health issues on a global scale. Specific locations and content vary by year. Previous destinations have included Ireland, Peru, Malaysia, and China. For more information contact Dr. James McGlothlin.
Semester exchange program
Spend a semester in Dublin! Pre-professional Public Health and Environmental Health Sciences majors are encouraged to spend either the fall or spring of their junior year studying at the Dublin Institute of Technology’s School of Food Science and Environmental Health through our semester exchange program. Through this program students will continue their course of study, but in addition, gain insight into how public and environmental health play out on a global stage while also learning about Irish history and culture. For more information about this program, please contact Truda Strange or the study abroad office, which also provides additional information on cost, housing, and other details of the program.
