In addition to studying, many of Stephens’ study abroad programs offer elite internships and educational volunteer opportunities during the summer or school year. Such opportunities provide valuable hands-on experience in career development abroad.
Speaking a Language
Speaking a foreign language is a valuable complement to a study abroad experience. As international cooperation increases in business, the arts, science and other fields, fluency in two or more languages gives Stephens students a competitive edge.
