This list is not comprehensive of all program types, but use them as a guide to determine which SDSU-approved programs offer the most transferable courses. However, note that courses abroad are not guaranteed as course offerings change every semester.

Curated list of Semester Undergraduate International Programs by Major

The following list is not comprehensive; students may also search for programs on their own by selecting their "Field of Study" using the Advanced Search function on Aztecs Abroad.

Students are advised to select universities where they can enroll in at least 12 units per semester (and have two-three alternates per course). Note the Program type and Chances of Placement listed on Aztecs Abroad.  Programs vary with regards to credit type; financial aid and scholarships eligibility, and available spaces.

Utilize the Course Articulation sheets as a guide to determine which SDSU-approved programs offer the most transferable courses. However, note that courses abroad are not guaranteed as course offerings change every semester.

*Unlike other Business majors, Accounting majors are recommended to study abroad prior to any semester they are starting their Upper Division Major courses. 



  • We currently have Fowler students studying abroad this term!
  • As the pandemic is not yet over, students are encouraged to remain flexible and have a contingency plan just in case programs are postponed, cancelled, and/or changed to virtual formats at later date.
  • Students should not book any accommodations or flights until they have received confirmation regarding their onsite program. 
  • For questions, reach out to the SDSU Global Education Office .
  • The ideal time for Business majors (except for Accounting majors) to study abroad for a semester or year is the first or second semester of Junior year (first year of upper division courses). Accounting Majors are encouraged to participate in a semester or year program earlier than their junior year.
  • SDSU also offers credit-bearing virtual internships, as well as non-credit bearing Volunteer and/or Service-Learning opportunities during the Winter and Summer breaks. Each program type has varied minimum eligibility requirements.
No, it is not a requirement for Fowler students to participate in an international program, but it is highly encouraged to do so! 
The Fowler Study Abroad Checklist for Success provides a timeline and the respective offices at SDSU that you will be working with closely to plan your experience.
  • Application deadlines vary by program type but in general, it is six months before the program start date.
  • For the most updated information, be sure to check the deadline as listed on the Aztecs Abroad program brochure.
