Choosing a Program

Attend a General Information Session in the SDSU Study Abroad Office (located in the International Student Center) to get an overview of all SDSU program types.

 

All SDSU programs are listed in the SDSU Aztecs Abroad Database.

 

  • Use the search function and choose “Liberal Studies” or “Education” for Field of Study to get recommendations.
  • Explore your options.
  • Liberal Studies students will satisfy the International Experience requirement with any international program, but in order to receive Liberal Studies units toward the major, courses must be approved by Liberal Studies Academic Advisors prior to departure.
  • See below for highlighted semester and summer programs. See the Viewbook at the right for spring break programs offered by Liberal Studies.
