Study Abroad Programs

Study Abroad Summer 2017

International Communication and the International Workplace, Paris and Brussels.


As an undergraduate student, you will receive 6 credit hours (CS 400 and CS 493). As a Communication Studies major, these classes will fulfill the requirements of two 400-level electives. Participants will enjoy a deeper understanding of the similarities and differences in communication between the U.S. and Western Europe as well as the relationship between culture and communication. Participation in the program is also an excellent resume-builder – both academic and professional.

A $500.00 scholarship is available through the Center for International Education. If interested, please submit your application as soon as possible.

APPLICATIONS for the annual summer study abroad program are now being accepted. Students will receive credit for CMST 400 & 493 (UG) or CMST 591 & 593 (G). This will fulfill the two 400 level electives required in the major for undergraduates.

Studying or interning abroad experience for a CCI student means:

  • Understanding the field of communications from an international perspective
  • Expanding your career opportunities
  • Advancing your cross-cultural and problem solving skills
  • Improving foreign language abilities
  • Fulfilling major, minor and general education requirements

Participate in Field Study/Internship and Experiential Learning Opportunities

  • Check with Career Services about the Intern in Ireland program which is aimed directly at Communication and Information majors.
  • Experiential learning abroad programs can often be structured to fulfill major requirements if you think creatively and plan in advance with a communications advisor.
  • Examples include incorporating your experience into a major project, honors thesis, or independent study course.

    Academic Planning for Study Abroad in Communication and Information

    • Communication and information students can study abroad at any time once they have completed at least two semesters at UT.
    • Transfer students may study abroad after completing one semester at UT.
    • Students should meet with their major advisor in Communication and Information as early as possible to plan for the most academically useful experience abroad.
