Steve Hicks School of Social Work
Students in the School of Social Work can take advantage of opportunities to take courses, research and participate in service-learning or internships abroad to broaden their education, expand their expertise and strengthen their portfolio as they launch their careers.
To streamline research in selecting a study abroad program, we have highlighted programs that feature strong coursework options. Use the following guidance as a starting point for identifying programs that will best fit your goals. For those seeking minor or certificate credit, the major guide can serve as an important tool in locating partners that may have pre-approved coursework that can satisfy requirements.
In order to have the best experience abroad, it is recommended that students meet with their academic advisor early in their undergraduate career. Be sure to review the resources on the Education Abroad pages, including the funding resources page and the events calendar.
Students can fulfill core and flag requirements abroad via petition. For more information, view the Texas Undergraduate Studies petitions page. Remember to use the My Credit Abroad database to explore the historical record of courses other UT students have taken abroad.
Questions about credit? Review the Study Abroad Credit page for more information about receiving academic credit while abroad.
