Study Abroad

We encourage students to study abroad and gain a global perspective of sustainability issues. The GW Office for Study Abroad offers an extensive list of study abroad opportunities for undergraduates. Sustainability minors can participate in study abroad programs that offer sustainability-related field work to fulfill their Culminating Experience requirement (note: these must be approved by the Director of the Sustainability Minor before the study abroad experience). For more information, visit GW Office for Study Abroad.
