Study Abroad

Embarking on a study abroad experience can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your college career. Whether you decide to study abroad for a summer or a semester, you will return to Dixie State with a global perspective that cannot be taught in the classroom. Not only will you learn about another country, but you will gain a new outlook on your own culture and community.

At Dixie State, we provide a variety of study abroad opportunities that allow you to travel abroad while gaining academic credit:

Faculty Led Programs: These trips led by a DSU professor vary in length from one week to a month and are usually held over the summer break. Because these are DSU courses, they fit easily into a student’s degree plan. On most of these programs, you will be with the same group of students and the professor will plan most activities. This makes faculty led programs a good choice for students who may be going abroad for the first time or who do not want to spend a long period away from campus.

Affiliate Programs: DSU works in collaboration with third-party providers to offer study abroad programs around the world. These programs vary in length from a summer, semester, or an entire year. Classes typically take place at a foreign university or an academic center administered by the provider. Before departure, you will work in conjunction with the Study Abroad Office and the third- party provider to choose classes that will directly transfer to your DSU degree.
