Wright State offers students three types of study abroad programs:

Ambassador Programs

Ambassador Programs provide an opportunity for students to study for short periods of time (1 – 4 weeks) during summer, winter, or spring break and are led by Wright State faculty members.  Click here to view ambassador programs.

Exchange Programs

Exchange Programs allow students to travel to Wright State partner institutions. While many of the programs require the student to take classes in the foreign language of their host country, there are some programs that are conducted in English. Students have the option of studying abroad in the summer, for a semester, or a full year.  Click here to view exchange programs.

External Partner Programs

External Partner Programs are programs offered by professional organizations and allow students to study for a summer, semester or an academic year.  Through this option students can study on six continents in 40 countries and in most cases without prior language experience.  These programs include courses for most Wright State majors/minors.  Click here to view all of our programs.
