Study Abroad Destinations

The CGE staff is currently advising for spring 2023, summer 2023, and beyond! Reach out to Study Abroad Advisor Calie Dickey to learn more.

The study abroad programs in this section have been approved for the participation of Butler undergraduate students. Study abroad programs marked “Exchange” indicate opportunities for Butler students to enroll directly as international exchange students while exchanging places with a degree-seeking student at a foreign institution. This model provides for an enriching cultural experience and is recommended for students who are prepared to independently engage in a study abroad experience at a foreign institution. Some of these exchange opportunities have been developed by Butler; others are available through the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP).

Other programs we offer are run by outside organizations—these programs, 3rd Party Provider programs, are available for American students interested in studying in a specific location. One of these 3rd Party Providers is the Institute for Study Abroad (IFSA), founded on Butler’s campus in 1988. IFSA is one of the main study abroad program providers for Butler students. While all of IFSA’s programs are high quality, only the programs included in this section are part of Butler’s approved programs.

An asterisk (*) indicates that there is a language requirement for that program.

Global Adventures in the Liberal Arts

The Global Adventures in the Liberal Arts (GALA) study abroad program provides up to 20 students the opportunity to spend an entire semester traveling while taking Butler core and elective classes. Taught by Butler professors, the courses blend lectures, discussions, site-based activities, written assignments and exams. The location changes each year.

GALA 2023 is in the works! We are anticipating it will be GALA Europe (London, England; Rome, Italy; Prague, Czech Republic). Learn more about GALA 2023 here.

Want to learn the basics about our GALA program? Head to our non-location-specific GALA page.

The availability of exchange placements is determined by the number of incoming international students we have from each institution coming to Butler and the number of Butler students interested in those universities abroad. This means some the exchanges listed below may or may not be available in your chosen term. Contact Calie Dickey with any questions or to come up with a back-up program.
