Abstract

In recent years study abroad programs offered by American universities have grown rapidly, but little evaluation has been done. An exploratory analysis of one such program is described because no formal attempt had been made since its inception in 1976. Participants from 39 states were 309 men and women who ranged in age from 19 to 56 yr. A 30-item questionnaire, administered after the summer program, showed great variation in responses as students adjusted to living and going to school in a foreign country. The implications for the program's value were discussed.
