Global Education: Study Abroad

Global Experiences for Every Student

The mission of the Global Education Program is to foster global citizenship by providing the opportunity for all students to study abroad. Our program offers English-language courses in the sciences, humanities, business and the arts, as well as language study in Arabic, Spanish or French. Because we provide the lab science courses needed to complete many of the undergraduate programs at UNE, you can go abroad and stay on track with the requirements of your major.
