Justice Studies focuses on understanding people and their behaviors.  On a global stage, students will have the opportunity to gain new perspectives, participate in hands-on research, and learn to comprehend various customs and cultures.  Studying Abroad can also be a great time to gain cross-cultural skills by satisfying general education requirements or the elective credits allotted to Justice Studies majors.

See the list of recommended study abroad programs below.  Please be aware that for any external or exchange study abroad programs listed, students will need to check with their academic department to see if courses taken while abroad will transfer and fulfill needed requirements.
