GLBL 499: Study Abroad Alternative Project

Resources for students researching how COVID-19 impacted study abroad destinations around the world.


This guide supports the research projects of students enrolled in the Study Abroad Alternative Project (GLBL 499) during the spring 2021 semester. To build a thorough understanding of how COVID-19 has affected your travel abroad destination, you will need to draw from a variety of sources, including databases, local language sources, social media, news, and government websites. This project is an opportunity to both draw from and build upon your language knowledge and research skills as you learn about current developments in your country of choice.

For the project requirements, please refer to your course syllabus.
