The University offers a number of study-abroad programs during the summer semester and for longer periods.
In summer, the following are some of the programs available: French Language, Civilization, and Literature in Tours, France, followed by one week in Paris and another in Nice; Spanish Language, Culture, and Literature in Heredia, Costa Rica; German Language, Literature, and Culture in Oldenburg, Germany; International Business in Carrollton, New York, and London; Art and Art History in Bayeux, France, followed by one week in Paris and another in London. Statewide programs, offering a variety of courses taught by faculty from around Georgia, are coordinated through the Office of International Programs. These programs take place in Paris; London (Roehampton Institute); St. Petersburg, Russia; China; and Greece.
In addition, students who want a longer foreign experience can spend a semester or a full academic year at the University of Northumbria in Newcastle, England. Through the University's exchange agreement, a student will enroll at the University of West Georgia, paying tuition and fees, but will study in England. This arrangement provides an inexpensive opportunity for extended study abroad in various disciplines at an English-speaking institution.
