Founded in the belief that an international perspective is increasingly necessary for all university students, UNC Pembroke encourages students from all majors and fields of interest to receive a part of their education in an international environment.
The benefits of studying abroad are many, allowing you to:
- Learn about different cultures
- Develop a broader understanding of the world
- Increase your knowledge of and facility in a foreign language
- Learn more about your own culture and identity
- Understand differences in educational styles and systems
- Increase employment marketability upon graduation
- Engage in the kind of one-on-one, face-to-face diplomacy that can promote peace and mutual understanding between cultures.
At UNCP, there are numerous study abroad options and in the International Programs Office several staff members, including the Study Abroad Coordinator, who are eager to walk you through your options. For more information please contact the study abroad office at 910.521.6573 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
