International Study and Global Opportunities

More than 70 percent of USD’s undergraduate students participate in study abroad programs, including research, internships and community engagement.

USD is ranked consistently at the top in the nation for study abroad participation. Academic programs are offered through 135 programs in 44 countries in 76 cities.

Students are challenged to explore existing global perspectives and cultures to become ethical leaders in a globally complex world.

At the USD Madrid Center in Spain, students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the local culture while taking courses in business, humanities and the social sciences.

Graduate student programs are tailored to provide hands-on experience within a particular field of study. Several graduate programs, including our Leadership Studies and International MBA programs, require international experience for degree completion.
