Students in the undergraduate program for Communication Sciences and Disorders have the opportunity to take a fall or spring semester at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand. Faculty in the Department of Special Education and Communication Disorders, with the help of the Education Abroad Office, have arranged for four approved course equivalencies for the University of Canterbury to provide this option for undergraduates.
Students are expected to meet benchmarks before being approved for this semester abroad. Contact your advisor for more information.
