International Study

The George Washington University infuses nearly every facet of its programs and curricula with the exploration of international issues. GW offers one of the most active study abroad programs to be found anywhere, but this is just the beginning. GW students who choose to participate in international study become part of a lifelong, worldwide community of students, alumni, parents, friends and institutions that begins in Washington and spans the globe.

GW’s Office of International Programs strengthens resources and deepens relationships to expand global opportunities for faculty and students and to meet the international demands of the university’s diverse curricula. Whether you are a representative of a potential partner institution, a student undertaking study or clinical training overseas or a scholar extending your work to other parts of the world, we provide linkages with the departments, information and resources that shape and advance your international efforts.
