Study Abroad

Expand your horizons by studying abroad in more than 50 countries, plus service-learning trips overseas and internships around the globe. In addition to TCU’s semester, summer, and short-term programs, English and writing students explore the world through global courses.

Study abroad is an eye-opening and life-changing experience. While abroad, you’ll cultivate your cross-cultural communication, creative thinking and problem-solving skills, and become more adaptable, self-reliant and internationally aware. Our students return to TCU with new skill sets and perspectives — and better equipped to succeed in the global economy.
