Have you dreamed of studying African history in Ghana, honing your art skills in Italy or learning a language by immersing yourself in another culture? More information about these and other study abroad opportunities at Montana State University will be available at the MSU Study Abroad Fair, set for 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 16, in Ballrooms B and C of the MSU Strand Union Building.

International students, study abroad advisers and past study abroad students will answer questions, tell stories and give details about the programs that are offered through MSU. Study abroad opportunities are offered for students in any major through more than 250 programs in 50 countries. Many programs cost the same as MSU tuition.

"Studying in another country is an unforgettable and priceless learning experience that cannot in any way be emulated in the classroom," said Amy Johnson, study abroad adviser and outreach coordinator for the MSU Office of International Programs, which hosts the event. "Study abroad programs offer students an opportunity of a lifetime they will never forget."

"Most students are completely transformed by their experience studying abroad," said Bridget Kevane, MSU Spanish professor and chair of the MSU Department of Modern Languages and Literature. "They fall in love with a different culture, become fluent in a language, and see the world through different eyes."
