Global Option certificate

The Global Option is a series of undergraduate courses and experiences which can be incorporated into most EHE programs of study at any of our five campuses. By selecting courses and experiences that have an international focus within the existing program offerings students can add a recognition on their transcript that recognizes their global experiences. Talk to your undergraduate program advisor or click here to learn more.

Education Abroad and student support for study overseas

Ohio State offers study abroad experiences throughout the year, especially between May and August. Experiences include education abroad experiences operated by other institutions, internship experiences, Ohio State education abroad courses offered by other Ohio State colleges or campuses, and EHE education abroad courses. EHE students are eligible to enroll in any of the experiences and can seek funding support for these experiences.

Study Abroad Financial Support

There are FIVE different financial supports for study abroad; three of these are offered by the College of Education and Human Ecology.

  1. Course Subsidies:
    All EHE faculty-led study abroad courses receive significant subsidies from the college. This means that courses fees associated with the study abroad experience are heavily discounted. These discounts are built directly into the advertised course cost. In 2017-18, faculty-led study abroad course subsidies total approximately $100,000.
  2. EHE Ambassador Award:
    The EHE Ambassador Award provides need-based financial assistance to EHE students participating in EHE faculty-led study abroad programs that take place during the 2017-18 academic year. One scholarship will be awarded to an EHE student in each of the 2017-18 EHE faculty-led study abroad programs. Click here to access the application.
