Study Abroad Programs

The study abroad programs in the College of Education provide students with opportunities to complete coursework abroad, visit and teach in K-12 schools, and learn and experience culture and history.

The study abroad programs are made possible by dedicated faculty who value global experiences and believe that authentic learning often takes place outside of the classroom. As Purdue University expands its international reach, the College of Education faculty are committed to helping our students become global citizens by focusing on diversity, quality and accessibility.

Study abroad opportunities offered by faculty members in the College of Education:

England – Dr. Melanie Shoffner
Germany and Austria – Dr. Chrystal Johnson and Dr. Nancy Boes
Honduras – Dr. JoAnn Phillion
Italy – Dr. Denise Whitford
Jamaica – Dr. Allen Talbert
Northern Europe – Dr. Anatoli Rapoport
Romania – Dr. Kathy Obenchain
