Global Education

Global Education


The College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) supports opportunities for students to expand academic horizons through global education experiences. Programs offered may last from one week to as long as a year. Studying away from campus, either domestically or in another country, can have a profound impact on a student’s future. On these trips, students have the opportunity to explore cultures and experience different worldviews.  In today’s global marketplace, more and more employers are looking for students who possess the skills necessary to communicate and thrive in a diverse environment.

Support


The College of Education and Human Development supports CEHD students through program support funding. These are monies provided directly to the programs, thereby lessening the fees and other costs students might pay. This support ranges up to $500 per student for domestic trips; up to $1000 per student for international trips; and up to $2000 per student for faculty-led trips.

CEHD Programs

CEHD offers many unique global opportunities designed specifically for students within the college.

Program Types


There are many different ways to study off campus or participate in a global experience.  All students have different needs depending on degree plan, time to graduation, duration of the program, and desire.  The following program types may help you narrow down what type of experience fits your needs.

  • Faculty Led: Credit- bearing group trip led by a CEHD faculty.  A faculty-led program lasts a full term.  Most programs are offered in the summer, but can also be available for the fall, spring, or even winter break terms.
  • International or Domestic Field Experiences: Short-term group trip, usually 1-2 weeks in length, led by CEHD faculty or staff.  A field trip is typically a component of an on campus credit-bearing course offered during fall, spring, or summer terms.  See the programs listed at the above link offered by the College of Education and Human Development.
  • Reciprocal Exchange: The Texas A&M University Reciprocal Education Exchange Programs (REEPs) provide TAMU students the opportunity to study and live at an international partner university for one or two semesters. Students enroll in the academic setting of the host university, attending classes and interacting with local students. These programs provide adequate time for a total cultural immersion which significantly enhances cross-cultural experience and understanding.  See the Study Abroad Programs Office website for a List of University-Wide Exchange Programs available.
  • Transfer Credit: Students take pre-approved courses at an accredited institution overseas and transfer the credits back to their degree plan.  A Transfer Credit program can go through a third party provider, a sponsoring U.S. university or college, or an accredited international university.  These programs are a great option for students who need to take a specific type of class or would like to spend time in a specific country.  See the Transfer Credit page on the Study Abroad Programs Office website for more information.
