Studying abroad is an experience that some college students choose to take advantage of at some point during their college career.

What is Study Abroad?

Studying abroad is the perfect way for students to travel the world and advance their academic career at the same time, all while earning school credit. When you study abroad you usually take anywhere from a semester to a full school year and spend it studying at another educational institution in another country. You will still technically be a student at your home university.

Still, the thought of choosing a major can be a stressful one; a decision that can create second thoughts on whether or not you are going with the right one. Follow this guide for help in choosing a college major.
