Study Abroad

[If you are a non-Butler student looking for the Institute for Study Abroad (IFSA), please visit the Institute for Study Abroad's website.]

Butler University offers over 200 study abroad programs in over 60 countries to meet the diverse needs of the student population. You may choose to study for a semester, academic year, or summer term. All students who wish to study abroad must work with the Center for Global Education (CGE). You may study abroad as early as the first semester of your sophomore year and as late as your senior year, if allowed by your College. The CGE provides study abroad advising and organizes pre-departure and re-entry sessions to help guide you through the study abroad process, and encourages you to begin considering study abroad as part of your academic planning in your first year at Butler.

The CGE also maintains the List of Approved Programs, titled Where Can I Go? to research approved study abroad programs. This list offers a wide variety of options to Butler students interested in studying abroad during the academic year. All programs on the list meet Butler’s high standards for academic excellence. Students are expected to select their overseas study program from the List of Approved Programs.

Participation in a study abroad program encourages the exchange of knowledge and understanding, and promotes enlightened and responsible citizenship and leadership. We strongly encourage you to study in an international setting as a part of your academic experience at Butler. Learn more about how to find the option that’s right for you, how to plan and prepare for your study abroad experience by attending one of the CGE's monthly Study Abroad Information Sessions.
