Study Abroad

An Education Without Boundaries

Studying abroad is one of the best ways to advance your language skills. As a person living and learning in a host country, you have the opportunity to become fully immersed in international cultures while gaining firsthand knowledge of national ethnic groups. 

A unique aspect of our study abroad programs is our focus on community engagement in professional settings. Get involved in service learning projects for organizations and nonprofits that are dedicated to a good cause. For example,  our students have worked with organizations that benefit refugees, single parent families, medical facilities, animal shelters, and much more.

Cultural immersion gives you a career advantage in the 21st century global marketplace. It’s also an experience you can take with you wherever you decide to do in life after graduation.

Cal Poly Humboldt students are able to study abroad with several types of programs, including Faculty-Led, CSU International Programs, third party, and bilateral exchanges.
