The Study Abroad Office recognizes the potential of students who, through their diverse cultural backgrounds, talents, interests, and perspectives, will enhance the educational experience at Texas State University. This program is committed to helping students achieve their academic goals by providing a unique study abroad experience in a diverse group.
