Choosing the Right Program
Choosing the Right Program
Finding the right program can be overwhelming. Here are some things to consider in your decision:
- Are you interested in meeting degree requirements toward the major, minor, bacc core, internship or electives?
- Have you checked to see which programs are the best fit for your major?
- Are you looking for courses in English, want to learn a new language, or need a combination of language courses and courses in English?
- What goals do you have for yourself for personal growth, language and culture learning, and perspective on your degree?
- Who do you want to learn from and with? Are you interested in taking classes with local students? Do you want an OSU or Pacific Northwest faculty member on the program?
- What is your financial situation? Do you currently have aid and scholarships to apply to the program cost? Are you interested in programs comparable in cost to being at OSU? How would you manage daily living expenses in a location with a different cost of living?
- Are you interested in living with a local family, local students, or with other Americans?
- Do you like to be in a big city or a small town?
