YouDee at Camps Bay, Cape Town

The Department of Human Development and Family Sciences coordinates several study abroad programs, including:

The University of Delaware is a national leader in study abroad programs, consistently ranking among the top five public research-extensive institutions for student participation. Approximately 40% of UD undergraduate students travel abroad, studying with faculty on six of the seven continents. In March 2015, UDaily reported that UD’s faculty led 60 study abroad programs across six continents!

We encourage our students to take advantage of this life-changing experience. International service-learning has an incredibly positive social and personal effect on student participants.

Not only do our students learn about their new environment and the people with whom they interact, they also discover a lot about themselves. They develop an expanded personal perspective, improve problem-solving skills, and often a deeper appreciation for their own privilege—something they took for granted.

Students can participate in study abroad programs in locations throughout the world. To learn about all the options, refer to UD’s Study Abroad webpage.
