The Study Abroad Office at Ashland offers unique, affordable programs that focus on core classes so a student of any major can participate. Past study abroad students describe it as one of the most powerful transformational experiences in their lives. Learning about art in Italy. Studying WWII in Germany. Touring the Nike & Converse plants in Amsterdam. These experiences dramatically increases students' cultural awareness, enhances their problem-solving skills, and builds their confidence and independence.
