1. Conduct a search in our study abroad management system, Terra Dotta

Terra Dotta lets you research where you may want to go. You have the option of studying abroad with one of our approved study abroad providers or studying abroad as part of a military exchange. Terra Dotta will provide you with hundreds of results no matter where you want to go!

There are different languages, clothes, foods, and customs in just about anywhere you go, but we are not really so different. I feel connected to people on a more global scale now. I don't feel as though my city or state or country are the only places I could ever be happy/comfortable
