Education Abroad

Did you know that Global Studies majors were the third largest group of undergraduate students to study abroad in Academic Year 2019-2020? While studying abroad is not a requirement of the Global Studies major, our students are always encouraged to break out of traditional classroom boundaries and challenge their perspectives. There's no better way to do that than from halfway across the globe! 

Interested in going abroad, but not sure the best place to study? Check out the advising sheets the UVa Education Abroad team has created based on your Global Studies major:

Global Development Studies

Global Environments & Sustainability

Global Public Health

Global Security & Justice

Global Studies Middle East & South Asia

Global Commerce in Culture & Society (coming soon)

Keep in mind these are just a starting point. For more information, set up an appointment with an Education Abroad Advisor.


Global Internships

Many Global Studies students take advantage of the global internship opportunities provided through the Education Abroad office. UVA offers students flexible options to structure their internship in a way that best suites their needs. There are also scholarship opportunities that can help alleviate the cost of a global experience.
