Education Study Abroad

Neil Said:

Where is the best place to study abroad for an education major?

We Answered:

I'm writing this assuming that you want an experience you can apply to a career in some fashion (not necessarily as experience you can put on your resume) and that you plan to continue on the educator and/or liberal arts route (clearly you would not care about where to study abroad if you wanted to be a mathematician, since experiencing the world is not really needed for that subject). This is pretty much what I did when considering a study abroad program.

The first thing to do is sit down and figure out where you want to be in 5, 10, and 20 years after your degree is complete.

The only thing I could think you would do with an Education BA is become an administrative official at a school or college, without further education credits in a specialized area like math or science or primary school teaching. Therefore, you might look into possible internships or work study experience you could get through colleges in countries you have the option to study abroad at. Otherwise, just go where you think you might like to go.

If you plan to eventually concentrate in an educational field, I would suggest sitting down with a piece of paper, folding it in half and making a list on each side. One side should be a list of subjects you might want to teach (and possibly get your Masters/Ph.D in) and the other side should be a list of places you think you might want to go because they interest you... and do some matching to see if any of the two work together (for example, you decide you want to teach history at a university and that you might like greek history... and Greece happens to interest you... this is a match). Add the ones that match to your "short list." The interesting thing about getting an advanced degree is that it teaches you specialization in your chosen field. A history major, for example, will choose to specialize in some time period and generally some country (Italian Renaissance Ph.D. student might like to have gone to Italy for their undergrad study-abroad program). An English major specializing in Romantic poetry might have visited England and seen all the places described by Romantic poets, like Wordsworth's "Tintern Abbey" (a real place in the UK!) or to another country where a museum has been created to represent these authors, or where romantic poetry is highly valued as part of the institution's curriculum. A psychologist might decide to specialize in Early Childhood Development and might have studied abroad at a college where this topic was making new discoveries (if not a US institution). An anthropologist might decide to study ancient South American civilizations because he went to Brazil. A social studies teacher might visit an African Institution (though it is pretty dangerous today), so that they have close access to tribes. Etc. Etc. Etc. I hope this helps a bit. Good luck.

EDUCATION LOAN - STUDY ABROAD?

We Answered:

You should be. No Loans I know of are automatic unless you signed a contract for them. If you talk to someone at the Bank you should be able to put a stop on the Loan before you get into any serious money issues. I would suggest you act quickly, the quicker the better when it comes to your situation.

Ruben Said:

best school for a spanish education major with study abroad options?

We Answered:

It probably would be best for you to do your study-abroad program at a U.S. university in Spain, or through a U.S. program in Spain -- the credits will be more easily transferrable to your university back home. You could even do a full degree program there, if you wanted. Here are a couple of U.S. programs in Spain:

Study Abroad Programs give you the opportunity to experience the world as your classroom. Rather than picking things up from books and the Internet, navigating a new landscape may open your eyes to culture, history, a new language or your heritage.
