Did you know that Study Abroad is a great resume-builder? It sets you apart from your job-seeking peers who have not participated in an international experience. By studying abroad, you can enhance your Mason experience and gain valuable skills
that can benefit you various ways:
- Learn how to adapt to new situations and evaluate “old” habits.

You may even find similarities!

the willingness to accept alternative views.
- Become more self-confident .
