This study abroad program allows students to (1) engage in the development of research projects that are related to the speech pathology and audiology major, (2) understand universalities and differences as they apply to speech and language, (3) study cultural and linguistic differences in research (e.g., topics chosen by researchers), educational, and therapeutic practices, and (4) develop skills in international networking.
