Where Should I Study??

The Library can't advise where you should go abroad -- for that we refer you to the Center for International Programs.

The resources on this guide will help you to get to know the region of the world where you're thinking about studying.  Our library is a rich resource of

  • Primary documents: treaties, speeches, creative works, government and travel information
  • Analysis: News, political and economic information
  • Books and other resources about the cultural-exchange experience.

We also link you to news and other information from the universities who have cooperative agreements with the CIP's Study Abroad Program.

Databases: Important background information on a country or region

Brainstorm: 

  • What is the history and culture of the place where you want to study? 
  • What is the region known for? 
  • Folklore?  Art?  Music?
  • What important events shaped the region?

Here are a few electronic tools to help you reflect on these ideas
