Grady Study Abroad Opportunities: 

By: Raynor Manley

You will often hear panelists or alum recommend studying abroad and say it’s the one thing they regret not doing in college. It truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn about a different culture, meet new friends and jump out of your comfort zone. 

UGA has so many unique options to choose from, and this article takes a look at what Grady College specifically offers for students to study abroad either domestically or internationally. 

It is beneficial for Grady students to study abroad because an understanding of journalism on a global scale is necessary to set students apart from their peers. Studying abroad not only adds to your college experience but it also adds valuable skills to your skill set that you can’t learn in a classroom.

I was a little hesitant at first, but my professor and classmates made it of so worth it. I ate good, made great memories, and learned so much!”
