Investigating the Careers of Language Study Abroad Alumni
Penn State University, The Forum on Education Abroad, and the American Councils for International Education are collaborating on a large-scale research project to explore the longitudinal effects of language learning and study abroad on career outcomes. The project is being funded by the Department of Education’s International Research and Studies grant program. The deadline for participating in this survey has now passed.
4899 respondents completed our survey! The team is working hard to analyze the data and begin Phase 2. We look forward to sharing some results with you soon.
Until then, Amelia Dietrich, Director for Research and Resources at The Forum on Education Abroad, (firstname.lastname@example.org) can answer any questions you may have related to this project.
