valuable international experience
Undergraduate research opportunities abroad are expected to increase in light of the Schreyer Honors College's goal of 50 percent of its students graduating with international learning experience. This may involve spending a traditional semester studying abroad at an international university; taking a Penn State course abroad with a Penn State professor; conducting laboratory or field research; or participating in volunteer service, such as with Volunteers for Peace or teaching English as a second language in China.
