Agreement Creates New Study Abroad Opportunities for Students

March 11, 2019 by
As the discipline of public administration continues to expand internationally, the need for future public servants to be exposed to a variety of cultures and communities is continuously increasing. A study abroad partnership between ADA University in the Republic of Azerbaijan and UCF allows undergraduate students to study at either university for up to two semesters. “More and more, students are looking for opportunities to enhance their classroom learning and better understand the world around them. Participating in a study abroad program allows students to continue their studies in a new environment and within a different culture,” says Stephanie Krick, associate lecturer and director of undergraduate public administration programs at the UCF School of Public Administration. Experiences such as this advance critical thinking skills, cultural awareness, and provide a more thorough understanding of the importance of public administration on an international level.
