Additional Travel Study Programs
Students are not limited to the programs offered through Winona State. There is also the option of enrolling in WSU-sanctioned programs through other universities. Through special agreements with other U.S. universities including sister schools of the MnSCU system, students have a wide range of programs from which to choose. Many of our students have gone on programs through University of Wisconsin Platteville, Stout, Eau Claire and La Crosse.
The first step is determining personal goals. Different programs offer a varied arrange of educational options. Such questions to consider when setting your goals should include:

Make sure, however, that when a specific program is finally chosen that it correlates with what you want to accomplish. Remember, the common locations to study abroad tend to be more expensive and offer fewer scholarships. If money is an issue, consider traveling to Asia, Africa or South America. You may find that these locations will grant unique opportunities that only a few ever experience.
Finally, it is important to coordinate the application process, so students are encouraged to work closely with the International Studies Director of the other universities to get information and process their applications. Students must fill out the along with the application of the selected program before being accepted to study abroad. Best of Luck!
Why study abroad?
"After I studied in England and traveled around Europe, I think I became more open-minded towards different cultures and the difference from my own. I came to appreciate certain things about other cultures as well as reaffirming the appreciation for my own."
