Travel, learn and earn college credit.
Taking on the world’s health challenges can’t wait. That’s why students in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences regularly take advantage of studying abroad, via the Office of Global Opportunities (OSU GO). This office offers rich and diverse opportunities for you to travel, learn and earn credits. You may choose an international experience applicable to any CPHHS program of study by earning bacc core or elective credits, or you may choose a specific experience related to your major.
Notice Study abroad programming options are dependent on current university and international travel policies. Please refer to Global Opportunities and COVID-19 FAQ’s for the most up to date information on travel restrictions and program availability.
