Thank you for your interest in SMU Abroad programs and for supporting your student in this important experience. The educational value of studying internationally is tremendous. Immersion in another culture can also be complex; usually exciting, but sometimes posing real challenges. Southern Methodist University appreciates the important role that parents, family, and friends play in supporting our students abroad.
