Beyond the academic benefits of study abroad for students, faculty have the opportunity to conduct research, acquire artifacts, and further engage their scholarly pursuits in new and challenging environments.

Student study abroad

The world awaits!

All Central State University students are encouraged to study abroad. Studying abroad is an enriching, life-changing experience. Spending time outside of the U.S. opens a window to a world of opportunity for deepening students’ understanding and knowledge of political, international, economic, and global issues.

Apart from academic enhancement and personal growth, students who have studied abroad possess skills that are valued in today’s competitive workplace — a global perspective, second-language acquisition, cross-cultural communication, and adaptability to new environments.
