Education abroad is proven to benefit undergraduates by broadening their perspectives, developing their intercultural competence, and contributing to their career opportunities. However, due to the pandemic, traveling abroad is difficult if not impossible. OSU students are also unable to visit Turkey right now due to security concerns. This virtual education abroad program promises to deliver many of the benefits of education abroad as an intensive program with direct synchronous instruction, including online interactions with people in Turkey.
