Study Abroad

More students from the Brian Lamb School of Communication study abroad during their time at Purdue than from any other department at the university (38% of last year’s graduates!). There’s still room for more, though. And while our students can elect to study abroad in many countries through Purdue’s study abroad office, we highly recommend several outstanding programs that are tailored to our majors and usually involve faculty members and students from the Lamb School.
