Office of International Programs

Studying abroad is a great experience and offers many different opportunities such as enhancing future job opportunities, expanding your horizons, the ability to earn credits towards your degree while experiencing a new culture, and an impressive addition to your résumé.

The Office of International Programs at UVa-Wise serves as the focal point for the development, supervision, and coordination of all international programs, activities, and services. Our goal is to promote better understanding of international issues by disseminating information on international opportunities, promoting courses abroad, providing support to international students on campus and developing an international outlook among students and staff.

This mission is akin to Thomas Jefferson’s idea to promote a global and liberal education that grants our students the opportunity to become “the ultimate guardians of their own liberty.”
