For the 2018-19 academic year, UNG has 36 active programs in 15 countries.

Studying abroad is a great way to obtain personal and intellectual growth, career inspiration, work experience, language acquisition, and intercultural understanding. Study abroad changes lives, and preparing students to be leaders in a global society is part of UNG’s mission.

UNG will celebrate its international programs and partnerships with various events Nov. 12-16 in recognition of International Education Week, a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and Department of Education to promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment.

Positioned in the fastest-growing region of the state, the University of North Georgia comprises five campuses united by a single mission focused on academic excellence and academic and co-curricular programs that develop students into leaders for a diverse and global society.
