CAS International Programs and Education Abroad

Studying abroad is an incredibly valuable, life changing experience. At the College of Arts & Sciences, we strongly recommend that all of our students study abroad at least once during their time at Kent State University. Regardless of your major, we will help you find a study abroad experience that meets your needs.
