Hundreds of University of Rochester students study outside the United States each year in more than 40 cities. Most take full-time study programs while others earn academic credit for internships, which are supported by related coursework in government offices, museums, health organizations, theaters, law offices, or corporations. These programs are operated under the auspices of the Center for Education Abroad in the College of Arts, Sciences, and Engineering.
