Study Abroad Opportunities

Department of Economics

  • Studying economics abroad provides you with one of the most unique academic, cultural, and lifetime experiences you can have in college. You can read more about the many options and you can submit an application to the UW “Cowboys Abroad” program at http://uwyo-sa.terradotta.com/.

 

  • Studying economics abroad deepens your understanding and appreciation of the global economy. UW economics professors have many collaborative relationships with international institutions around the globe. Working with our faculty connections lets you find the study abroad experience—the university, the country, the fieldwork, independent study, or foreign faculty mentors—that match your interests. Here is a sample of our international connections.

  • Studying economics abroad will not slow down your degree completion. UW has excellent opportunities that can count your international coursework towards your UW degree. The economics courses you take abroad can count toward your economics major with prior approval. Most credit hours earned through studying abroad can also contribute toward your degree in the free-electives category.

     
  • Studying economics abroad is not more expensive. UW has many agreements with international Universities such that you pay only UW tuition.  The Economics Department, International Programs, the College of Business, and many other UW academic units provide a significant number of merit- and financial-needs based scholarships to study-abroad students. If you write a good application, you have a good chance of getting a significant portion of your trip funded. Ask our Economics Department Faculty Contact for more information about these scholarships.

Robert Godby

Recently Rob Godby visited Pforzheim University in southwestern Germany to teach a compressed course in Macroeconomics to our partner MBA program there. The two-week intensive class in macroeconomics covered topics including macroeconomic theory, and using that theory to consider prospects for economies around the world, the European financial union, and interpreting the financial crises in the United States and Europe over the past decade.Click here to read an interview posted on Pforzheim University's website regarding his recent visit.
