Experience a Completely New Point of View

Study abroad for a summer, a quarter or an entire year. Learn with UCLA faculty and students or immerse yourself in a university. Do it for academic credit, an internship or research as early as the summer after your first year. Head to a top travel destination or an unexpected corner of the world. No matter what program you choose, the experience will be transformative.

I never imagined that a college field trip would involve a hike through the Amazon Rainforest or a visit to a manatee sanctuary.
