Studying abroad can be one of the most formative experiences in the life of a student. Though students' reasons for studying abroad are varied, most find that the education, language, and life lessons learned while abroad are immensely rewarding, professionally and personally. UW faculty regularly offer study abroad programs in Brazil and Peru. Most of the study abroad programs that Jackson School students attend are organized through the UW Study Abroad Office. Please note that the list below is not comprehensive, is provided only for your convenience, and does not guarantee that program courses will fulfill degree requirements.
For detailed information consult the Study Abroad office and/or website. To speak to an academic adviser about earning credit toward your major or minor, set up an appointment at JSIS's Student Services Office.
Some funding opportunities for study abroad can be found at: http://jsis.washington.edu/latinam/opportunities/funding.shtml
The UW Study Abroad office is located in 459 Schmitz Hall. The Study Abroad office can guide you through selecting and taking part in one of the many study abroad opportunities available.

Various UW departments offer intensive, small group, faculty-led programs during summer sessions and early fall start. View all 2013 programs here.
UW Department-Run Programs
In addition to Exploration Seminars, UW departments run quarter-long study abroad programs. View programs sorted by quarter here.
In summer 2011 CHID and LACS sponsored a summer program to Peru, see photos below:
These programs offer UW students the opportunity to study at colleges and universities throughout the world that have partnered with the University of Washington. Students arrange their own travels, housing, and coursework in their chosen location. Click here for more information. Currently, UW has agreements with two Latin American Universities: Catholic University of Argentina in Buenos Aires, Argentina and the University of Guadalajara in Guadalajara, Mexico.
These programs use their own faculty and are sponsored by established organizations that take students from different schools to a particular study site. Contact IPE for guidance on UW administrative and credit requirements.
Independent Research/Internship is appropriate for students wishing to perform independent work abroad. To do this, you must complete an Independent Research Packet. This requires you to first develop a research proposal and find a UW faculty member who will advise you throughout your research project and who will ultimately grade your final product. Students will make all of their own arrangements regarding housing, host country contacts, etc. All of the administration and paperwork for this type of study abroad is handled by the IPE.
