The Liberal Studies International Experience Requirement provides flexibility and variety, so you can make the most of your time abroad and fit the experience into your personal and academic schedule.

Consider how long you want to spend abroad. There are good reasons to study abroad for a longer stay, as well as for a short-term visit.

  • In a semester or year-long program, you have more time for exploration, cultural immersion, making friends . . . and it’s often no more expensive than staying at SDSU.
  • In a short-term program, you can gain an initial exposure to a new culture and focus on a more specific topic or theme.

As a Liberal Studies major, you have a variety of travel options to choose from, based on length of time you will spend abroad.
