International Programs

Interested in traveling and discovering new people, places and things? Then consider spending a week, semester or year studying at a partner university inside or outside the United States as a student at Alabama State University.

Why Study Away?

ASU’s exchange and other programs give you first-hand experience with another school or country’s culture and customs, from food to education and business. These programs also:

  • Look great on a resume
  • Give you a chance to travel
  • Provide an opportunity to learn a new language
  • Increase your self awareness, confidence and independence
  • Allow you to explore graduate study and employment opportunities
