Did you know that USAC offers programs in more than 25 countries? We also offer programs in multiple models and durations, and we offer a wide variety of courses, activities, field trips, and features across these programs. With that kind of variety comes a difficult decision about which program you will call home. And LGBTQ+ students have even more to take into consideration in terms of their identity when choosing a USAC program.
If you’re an LGBTQ+ student searching for your perfect study abroad program, we understand how much research and personal reflection it can take to feel comfortable making a decision. Fortunately, USAC offers programs in quite a few LGBTQ+-friendly locations, so you can enjoy your study abroad with a little extra peace of mind.
