On this page: Learn about the Liberal Studies Semester Abroad option.

Plan soon for your semester of education and excitement abroad! Students gain more insight into their host country, have opportunities to explore neighboring countries, towns, and communities, and enjoy the cultural immersion.

Who Should Consider Semester Study Abroad?

Sophomore year usually works best for Liberal Studies, but junior year is also possible. If you think a semester abroad might be right for you, start planning as a freshman!

Allison Reik: A Semester in England

I studied for a semester at the University of Kent in Canterbury, England. They have a large population of international students and there are many events for those wanting to get to know the area and culture.

Additionally, I was easily able to assimilate and felt like a regular student at the university.

My favorite class was about the British education system.

Kent has a month-long spring recess, and I used the time to visit other European nations. All totaled, I visited 10 different countries.

Now I am making plans to take advantage of other international opportunities offered through SDSU!
