Study Abroad

Study Abroad

Childhood Education students are strongly encouraged to study abroad if possible. Because of the sequencing of required education courses and the varying requirements of each academic concentration, careful and early planning is essential. 

Generally, it works best for Childhood Education students to study abroad second semester sophomore year or first semester junior year. Summer is also a good option. Study abroad coursework will be applied to Gen Ed and/or concentration requirements. A notable exception is the senior-year program in Australia through SUNY Cortland, where students complete half of their NYS-required student teaching.
