Study Abroad

No matter who you are or where you study abroad, it’s important to understand how your expression of your gender and sexuality may impact your experience overseas. Cultures around the world can vary greatly in their perspectives, norms, and opinions relating to the complex gender and sexual identities of American study abroad participants.
