Environmental studies abroad
Study abroad experiences give deep insight into other cultures and ecosystems and are great ways to complement your Maryland coursework. Accordingly, financial aid and scholarships apply to study abroad.
Please coordinate your study through UM's Study Abroad office - 1118 H.J. Patterson Hall. Failure to do so could mean you lose your privileges as a UM student, e.g., priority registration, etc.
