Study Abroad Advising

CALS Study Abroad collaborates with CALS academic departments to provide you with the most relevant advice as you plan for a study abroad experience. We work to create resources, such as Major Advising Pages (MAPs), to guide your exploration of studying abroad. MAPs suggest times for students in your major or certificate to study abroad, questions to ask your advisors, and provide a list of recommended programs based on your major or certificate. The program list is not exhaustive, but can give you a place to begin your search.

CALS Study Abroad has completed several MAPs and is currently working to finalize additional MAPs. To see if a MAP has been developed for your major or certificate, visit here.

Scheduling an Appointment

In order to support you as you explore studying abroad, CALS Study Abroad offers virtual appointments during Fall 2020 with our Study Abroad Advisors.

When not working virtually, our office is located in the Office of Academic Affairs, Room 116 Agricultural Hall (1450 Linden Drive).

A CALS Study Abroad Advisor can:

  • answer questions about programs of interest that are within the CALS portfolio
  • discuss identity-related concerns while abroad
  • discuss financial, personal, and academic concerns
  • advise you on application procedures for specific programs

To schedule a meeting with the CALS Study Abroad staff, please schedule an appointment via Starfish in your MyUW.
