Study Abroad

The best public affairs learning experiences can often be found beyond our borders. To this end, the School of Public Affairs offers exciting exploration opportunities through our Study Abroad programs in Asia, Europe, Canada, and Central and South America.

These immersion experiences can impart lessons on other cultures' approaches to policy issues. This not only develops a global perspective on policy, but also helps apply it to issues at the state and local levels.

Our programs include the Ghent-SPA International Student Exchange Program in Belgium, which offers students the chance to study public administration, human resources management, and international organizations, and learn about public affairs in a European context.

We also offer student exchange programs in Brazil, Turkey, China, Argentina, and South Korea.
