The Honors Program

Education Abroad

A large percentage of our students explore specialized topics within their field through an Education Abroad experience. The EA office here at UK works closely with the Academy to challenge students to reach their fullest potential in new and diverse environments.

Education Abroad is an essential part of the college experience, particularly for Honors students. There is no better way to further explore a topic that interests you than to study it in a foreign setting. The diverse nature of the experience allows students to challenge previous ways of thinking, and develop new ways to stimulate their intellectual curiosity. In addition to the multitudes of opportunities available to students through the Office of International Affairs, there are also a number of Honors specific Education Abroad opportunities led by our dedicated faculty. Honors works closely with students to identify an option that is right for them, and in doing so, works to help every student get the most out of their travel experience whether it be during the Winter Intercession, the Summer, the Fall of Spring semester, or the entire academic year.
