Study Abroad Opportunities

There are many options available for students to study abroad through the University of Wyoming. If you'd like to learn more or if you're ready to submit an application, please visit the Education Abroad website.

 

Studying economics abroad...

  • Provides you with one of the most unique academic, cultural, and lifetime experiences you can have in college.
  • Deepens your understanding and appreciation of the global economy.
  • 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.
  • 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 Thorsten Janus (tjanus@uwyo.edu), our department's faculty contact, for more information about these scholarships.

Stories

Robert Godby

Rob Godby recently 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.
