A period of study in another country can provide direct experience with interpersonal and intercultural communication and exposure to media and public communication unmatched through any other means. Professors in the Department have traveled to and lived in many areas of the world, including Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. They are willing to share their expertise with students and will help by writing recommendations and guiding students to opportunities and contacts in other countries.
The Department encourages students to plan their academic career to make room for a study abroad experience. Students interested in studying abroad will find information from the UIC Study Abroad Office.
