Religion and spiritual life are important components for many students on campus as well as for many cultures abroad. When studying abroad/off-campus, students may find that host cultures may have completely different sets of beliefs and customs or may approach similar beliefs in a different way. Studying abroad in a country that has a different religious majority than what students are accustomed to can be challenging, but can also be an opportunity to broaden their perspectives and to connect across spiritual boundaries.
Below are some links to help inform and support students wishing to explore religion and spiritual life as they plan and prepare to study abroad. The resources are not all-inclusive but are a good starting point to help students prepare for their off-campus study experience. Please also feel free to discuss any questions or concerns with the Office of International & Off-Campus Education.
