Study Sociology Abroad!
Studying abroad is the best sociology education experience for students. It compels you to reexamine the social norms and expectations around you and the way we interpret our world by relocating you in a foreign place. Study abroad is a journey that takes you away from the familiarity of your home country environment into the unfamiliar setting of a foreign country, where you will encounter different norms, cultural customs, and linguistic barriers. This encounter will help you sharpen your sociological toolkit and explore both the familiar and unfamiliar in a different perspective, a sociological perspective. This opportunity rounds up educational experience, adventure, and visit in fascinating locals. It is the first step in becoming a global citizen of the world, understanding the connections between local and global issues and social problems.
