Study Abroad Advising

UW Obesity and Health in Austria

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 Major Advising Pages (MAPs).
