International Education has become increasingly important in university communities throughout the U.S. UNLV has been pro-active in its response to national and international trends. Students and faculty can use the resources of The Office of International Programs to participate in numerous academic programs abroad. Office of International Programs is committed to serving the UNLV community by providing resources and services which encourage international study.
International study experience is an important part of any college education. Study abroad helps students to understand our changing society and planet from a global perspective. International education and foreign language skills are also important in many careers. Living in a foreign country provides an opportunity to see our culture, ourselves, and others from a new perspective. Students who study abroad can develop insights into global politics, international economics, and planetary environmental preservation efforts, which can help shape the future.
