For August 2024, our Jacks Start Abroad programs will go to the United Kingdom (Crime and Criminology), the Netherlands /Belgium (Agricultural Business and Animal Science), Ireland (Global Studies and Exercise Science/Healthcare)  and France (Culture and Global Identities).  Each academic program is connected to a required fall semester class.
