Study abroad

Study sustainability globally

Study abroad courses provide you with the opportunity to apply classroom learning in a global context. Through these programs, you will witness and learn about sustainability principles and solutions in community, urban, and political settings on an international scale.

Each trip is led by faculty from the School of Sustainability along with local expert partners. Program cohorts are limited to small groups of 15-20 students, creating a close-knit learning community.

ASU and the School of Sustainability are currently moving forward with a number of spring and summer 2021 study abroad programs in destinations where student mobility from the United States remains possible. ASU takes guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the U.S. Department of State and our international security intelligence providers. When making decisions about specific programs, we also consider local conditions as well as input from peer institutions and our overseas partners.

Summer study abroad programs, but not Global Intensive Experiences (GIEs), are eligible for the Walton Global Sustainability Studies scholarship.

The following programs are expected to take place in 2021:

Post-spring 2021 programs (GIE)

Malaysia and Singapore: Innovation and Urbanization in a Biodiversity Hotspot (Not eligible for the Walton Global Sustainability Studies Scholarship.)

Summer 2021 programs

Ecuador: Indigenous Sustainability in the Amazon
