Studying abroad is one of the most beneficial opportunities available to honors students. This life-changing experience will expand their knowledge of the world, improve their decision-making skills, and enhance their cultural as well as academic development.
“Today's global challenges demand international competence. Americans who study abroad in quality programs for academic credit . . . are far better prepared for the demands of the twenty-first century.” - NAFSA: Association of International Educators
The University of Hartford has an array of international partnerships that provide honors students with an academically rigorous study abroad program. You can choose to study your field from a global perspective as well as conduct an independent research project overseas that can be used towards a thesis.
Students are encouraged to meet with the Study Abroad Office to learn more. Most financial aid and scholarships can be applied to semester and year-long programs. The University also runs several short-term faculty-led programs over winter and summer break.
