It is critical for the social and economic growth of the region that OSU students develop an international perspective. The department works closely with International Degree and Education Abroad (IDEA) to provide opportunities for our students to live and study abroad.  Explore the IDEA website for study abroad offerings from around the world and talk to your advisor about how your study abroad experience will fit into your academic, career and personal life goals.
