Information & Computer Sciences Majors Study Abroad



“I encourage Bren ICS students to complement their education with a study-abroad experience. These experiences can provide a unique perspective on the role that information technology plays in a global economy.  For many of our graduates, the opportunity to spend time abroad comes later in their careers -- if it comes at all. Taking advantage of this chance while they are in school can be invaluable.”

- Professor Amelia Regan
Associate Dean of Student Affairs
Donald Bren School of ICS
