Education Abroad supports global learning by providing opportunities for Texas Woman’s University students to live, learn, lead and serve abroad. Education Abroad Programs are transformational experiences which promote global awareness, global perspective, and global engagement.  Global awareness allows students to understand how environmental, social, cultural, political, and economic systems impact the world. Viewing the world through a global perspective enables students to examine links between their lives and the diverse lives of others. Students demonstrate global engagement in their personal and professional lives through intercultural interactions and problem solving.

After returning from an education abroad experience, students will have developed a more complex understanding of and the ability to integrate the following concepts:

Global Awareness: knowledge related to how environmental, social, cultural, political, and economic systems impact the world

Global Perspective: ability to examine links between one’s own life and the diverse lives of others

Global Engagement: intentionally participating in intercultural interactions and problem solving
