Social issues like gaining access to education, earning a living, medical decisions, and human justice are universal. Learning how families, individuals, and groups of people do things in a non-US culture provides valuable perspective and helps you identify and address your own personal biases. Taking your studies abroad lets you explore the shared beliefs of a new culture. It broadens your understanding of human behaviors and how social systems work.

  • Compare aspects of social life like education reform and how family life differs and flourishes in other countries
  • Share insights with policymakers working to design effective policy and management practices to instigate healthy change for people and organizations
  • Gain a better understanding of how other cultures approach, understand, and address social issues
