We encourage all Plan II students to make time in their academic career for study abroad, whether for a month, summer, one semester, or whole year.
Numerous programs exist to accommodate any schedule and degree plan, and so the earlier a student begins looking into opportunities the better.
Due to programs that fit every major, studying abroad attainable for each student.
Blake Elmore, a junior at Meredith College, talked about how studying abroad with the Meredith College Fashion Program in Paris, France benefited her: “I was able to immerse myself in a completely different culture, contributing to my appreciation and understanding of cultures other than my own” (Elmore).
In addition, Plan II offers two of our own study abroad Maymester Programs in Costa Rica and Italy respectively; these programs are taught by veteran Plan II teaching faculty and award academic credit for coursework required for the Plan II Major.
We hope to continue growing our travel grant as well as our study abroad programs and someday achieve our goal of having ALL Plan II students study abroad.
