Study Abroad with KU
Since the 1950s, KU has promoted international exchange as a vital link in education. A national leader in providing low-cost, high-quality study abroad programs, KU offers semester, academic year, summer, winter break and spring break programs in more than 60 countries around the world. These vary in structure from exchanges and individually arranged programs to group programs led by KU faculty.
Nearly 25% of all KU undergraduates participate in a study abroad program. For journalism students, that may be a summer spent studying Spanish or Italian in Europe. It may be a semester in Germany, Costa Rica, or Australia. Each summer, we have students gaining valuable professional experience as interns in locations like London, Dublin, Madrid, Sydney or Shanghai.
The KU Office of Study Abroad works with students to plan their experiences abroad. Whether you spend a spring break or a full semester, international experiences help build your skills and your portfolio as a Jayhawk Journalist. Check out the program search on the Study Abroad website and talk with your journalism advisor about where you’d like to go or what you’d like to study.
