When applying for jobs, studying abroad has illustrated that I could adapt to changing environments, as well as [exercise] my independence, time management and communication skills.
Going to college, it's easy to get stuck in the routine of going to classes and doing homework, but getting to travel the world and escape your comfort zone at the same time teaches you so many valuable lessons … It was the best thing I've done at ERAU so far.
Studying abroad is an experience of personal growth … Learning something new every day motivates me as a student, and studying abroad gives me this opportunity.
The Study America program was one of the best things I was able to do while studying at ERAU. This trip allowed me to put into practice the very material that is part of my degree.
Here at the Office of Global Engagement, we are deeply passionate about helping students experience the world. Studying Abroad is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to not only visit another country but to truly experience its culture.
Before picking the right program for you, here are some highlights of studying abroad:
- Opportunities around the globe.
- Summer, semester or yearlong programs.
- Take courses that apply toward your major.
- Study in English or the native language.
- Join the Travelers Club to experience other cultures on campus.
- Don't be a tourist — live abroad.
These programs are planned directly by Embry-Riddle (ERAU) faculty and typically last between 2-5 weeks during the summer. Some programs are specifically tailored toward a certain degree program, while others encompass all majors.
All of the courses are taught in English (except language courses), and at least one of the courses is taught by ERAU faculty. You will travel with a group of ERAU students, so you should feel right at home with your fellow Eagles.
Is five weeks not long enough for you, or do you just want to study in another language? If this is the case, a semester or yearlong program is right for you.
In these programs, you will truly live the culture. You get to choose the university that suits you (out of our partners), as well as what courses you want to take.
If you're worried about speaking another language, don't worry — many of our partners teach in English. This is the true, full-blown study abroad experience.

Phi Beta Delta (Theta Mu Chapter) International Honor SocietyPhi Beta Delta, founded at California State University, Long Beach in 1986, was established as an organization in 1987 with 38 chartered chapters, many of which had existed for a considerable time previously at the local level. It is the first honor society dedicated to recognizing scholarly achievement in international education.
Phi Beta Delta traces its background to the eighteenth-century founding of Phi Beta Kappa. In the nineteenth century, Greek fraternities divided into the social, professional, and academic Greeks. Phi Beta Delta is an academic and professional society, unique because it is resolutely interdisciplinary and international.
Our fraternity goals are to:
- Recognize the scholarly achievement of international students and scholars, who have studied abroad and faculty and staff who are involved in international activities.
- Serve as a vehicle for the development of academic-based international programming.
- Provide a network on each campus of faculty, staff and students involved in international endeavors.
- Extend this network to thousands of members in chapters throughout the world.
