Integrate study abroad into your individual academic plan

The fact is, with every friendship you make, and every bond of trust you establish, you are shaping the image of America projected to the rest of the world. That is so important. So when you study abroad, you're actually helping to make America stronger.

Join us for this cultural and educational once-in-a-lifetime experience! Puerto Rico is an island in the Caribbean with indigenous, Spanish, African and American influences. What do you imagine it means to be Puerto Rican, given the history? We will explore Puerto Rico by immersing ourselves in the language and culture through visiting historic sites, interactive cultural experiences, attending language classes, homestays, experiential learning, and more!
