The Secret's Out: Mason's study-abroad programs are your ticket to the world


George Mason University is your ticket to the world. With more than 200 programs in more than 60 countries, students can study abroad for as little as a week or as long as a full academic year. 

Whether it’s advancing your career through an internship at a global organization, expanding your academic learning by studying at Mason’s partner institutions abroad, learning a language by being fully immersed in the culture, or experiencing personal growth and enhancing your global awareness, Mason students from all majors can earn college credit while learning from expert faculty members who lead the trips.

$500,000 in scholarship opportunities from the Global Education Office, among other departments and organizations, make it possible for students from all backgrounds to make the world their classroom.

Students often describe their Mason study-abroad experience as transformative. Besides earning more credits faster, they step out of their comfort zone and return home with new knowledge, skills and global understanding.
