The Study Abroad Office is pleased to share the Academic Year 2015-16 Study Abroad Statistics. This summary sheet includes select statistics and data tables pertaining to TU student participation in academic programs abroad from Fall 2015 through Summer 2016. We are proud to report that 22% more Towson University students studied abroad during this period than the previous academic year; we are well on our way to meeting our Generation Study Abroad goal of increasing TU study abroad participation by 40% by 2020!

Students interested in learning more about how study abroad can fit into their degree plan should contact us at 410-704-2451 or studyabroad@towson.edu or visit our webpage at http://www.towson.edu/abroad/. Think study abroad is out of your budget? In AY 2015-16, two out of three students who applied for a TU institutional scholarship for study abroad were awarded a funds towards the cost of their program.

Faculty interested in teaching abroad should attend our information session to learn about the faculty-led study abroad proposal process, brainstorm ideas for programming, and hear from former faculty directors who will be on hand to give advice and share their own experiences.
