Spring 2022 COE Study Abroad Opportunities Have Been Suspended

Please visit the Aztecs Abroad database for other opportunities available this year.

Global Cultural Experience

The COE Global Cultural Experience offers students a perspective of both a country’s diverse people and the critical issues of its society, commerce, political spheres, religion(s) and culture(s). These experiences extend an opportunity for students to explore their responsibility to the global community.

Each department determines the various kinds of global experiences it recommends for its students (whether for academic credit or not). Consult your department's advisor and explore our pages to learn more.
