Study Outside the U.S.

Why Go Abroad?

It counts—Units earned abroad apply toward your degree at CSULB.

It's flexible—There are study, internship, and volunteer options for one year, one semester, Spring break, Summer session, and Winter session.

It's affordable—For most locations, the cost of living is the same as or less than living in southern California and financial aid and scholarships apply.

It's a résumé builder—Studying, interning, and volunteering abroad are some of the best ways to make the most of your college education. These experiences will also help you stand out among job applicants, since fewer than 2% of all U.S. college students study abroad—and fewer than 1% intern abroad. 

It's life-changing!
