Living and Learning

FAU Student Doing HomeworkOutside the classroom, hundreds of student activities from fraternities and sororities to pre-professional student associations enrich the learning experience and nurture relationships that last a lifetime. While there is no substitute for the dynamic synergy created in the classroom, FAU faculty and students seek out real-word experiences that enhance the classroom experience, such as internships, hands-on research and study-abroad opportunities.

Study Abroad

Each year hundreds of students participate in FAU-approved study abroad programs around the world. Students can study overseas for a semester, an academic year or during the shorter summer sessions or periods between sessions. Study abroad is open to all majors, and students earn academic credit toward their degrees. Popular destinations for FAU students include Ecuador, Italy, France, Greece, Japan and Spain. For general information on the range of international education activities at FAU please contact the Office of International Programs at www.fau.edu/goabroad.
