Winthrop University provides a variety of enriching opportunities for students to study abroad on all four corners of the globe and everywhere in between. Specifically, Winthrop has study abroad programs in Central and South America, Asia, Australia, Africa, and Europe. Winthrop has identified clear connections between studying abroad and the curriculum we offer our students. In fact, all of Winthrop's academic departments have identified a semester or summer where students may study abroad and still graduate within a four-year time frame. Students may participate in summer,
semester, or full academic year programs abroad while tailoring their
experience to their specific academic goals and personal interests.
Students may also elect to participate in one of our short-term programs
led by Winthrop faculty. A sampling of the study abroad opportunities offered at Winthrop are listed below as well as steps students can take to begin one of the most exciting and educational opportunities Winthrop has to offer.
