The Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences of the University of Southern California expresses its commitment:

  • To integrate study abroad into the undergraduate curriculum and to send a significant number of its undergraduates abroad for study at some time during their college lives
  • To continue to develop new international programs, and to increase the range of opportunities for study locations around the world
  • To maintain traditions of academic excellence in all study abroad programs
  • To encourage the appropriate foreign language preparation for study abroad
  • To facilitate both longer-term study (semester and year-long programs), as well as summer and other shorter-term programs, including student exchanges and other innovative possibilities for cultural exchange
  • To integrate study abroad with on-campus academic programs and activities; this includes effective advising, close coordination between international programs and relevant academic units, and development of relevant extracurricular programs
