Andre Gide said, “Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” Though the idea of studying abroad may seem daunting to many students, the reality is that students need to study abroad now more than ever.
The world is growing increasingly smaller and interactions with other individuals from around the world are inevitable. It is our hope that study abroad experiences will help students grow in ways that they never imagined possible before. Oliver Wendell Holmes said that “A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.” While each study abroad student experience their programs in different ways, each finds a new approach to see themselves or the world around them. Study abroad will definitely help with self-exploration and self-development.
The TAMU-CC Office of International Education and Study Abroad program staff are here to assist students with many facets of the study abroad process. We strive to provide students with as much information as possible before they commit to a program. We assist faculty in program development to ensure that they have the proper support in-country for programs that they will lead. We also support academic advisors with general study abroad advising.
