Study Abroad

Build a changing world from around the world.

The University of Arizona offers study abroad opportunities for students who are interested in taking their education outside the U.S.

CAPLA students have accompanied their faculty on a number of exciting programs in Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa.

Students also have the option of enrolling in a program hosted by another Arizona college or may enroll directly in an institution abroad. While foreign language skills are very desirable, a number of such institutions offer instruction in English. We award several scholarships to defray the costs of study abroad. Please visit the Global Initiatives Study Abroad office to learn more about program requirements and how to apply. Advising staff in Global Initiatives and at CAPLA can help you find the program that is right for you.


Summer 2024 Tentative Dates: May 22 to June 19 | Please do not purchase plane tickets until you have received instructions from Study Abroad.
