ATU Study Abroad Mission 

The mission of Arkansas Tech University’s Study Abroad office is to increase ATU’s presence and effective participation in the nation and the world. The office will promote and cultivate international education and multicultural understanding. Through its study abroad, study away, and exchange programs, this office strengthens global perspective, broadens world-view, and fosters responsible global citizenship of the campus community.

Study Abroad with Arkansas Tech University 

We believe international learning experiences can significantly impact your intellectual, personal and professional growth. When studying abroad, book knowledge comes alive. You experience culture and history firsthand. Your perspectives broaden. You leave a student and return a citizen of the world.

Today, Arkansas Tech partners with National Student Exchange and other organizations to offer short and year-long study abroad and study away programs. These programs have challenging coursework, and many have opportunities for internships, field study, independent research, language partnerships, community service, organized group excursions and personal travel.

Regardless of your major, your background or your circumstances, you can fulfill your dream to expand your world and travel abroad. Scholarships are also available to help you make that dream a reality.

The ATU Study Abroad Office holds the health and safety of its students as its highest priority. We have made every effort to make our programs as safe as possible, and provide our students and faculty with the information they need to make safe and informed decisions.
