James Madison University

International Programs - Study Abroad

Students of the College of Health and Behavioral Studies (CHBS) are encouraged to participate in international study programs offered by James Madison University. Study abroad experiences challenge students and increase self-confidence.  They can increase your appreciation of others and allow you to develop new perspectives regarding your home culture. Through international experiences you can increase your ability to interact effectively with people of other nationalities. International experiences can strengthen your resume, broaden your horizons, enrich your life, and open doors to future opportunities.  Study abroad opportunities available at JMU are described on the Office of International Programs website.  More information
