Study Abroad

Study abroad can be an important part of your undergraduate journey regardless of your major. Having enriching cross-cultural experiences in new environments can lead to big discoveries and change the way you see the world and yourself.

To speak with a Study Abroad staff member, scroll down to the bottom of this page for instructions on accessing Fall 2020 Virtual Drop-In hours.

We offer a variety of opportunities to suit your course of study and interests, including study abroad locations around the world and away in other U.S. locations. Programs vary in duration from one to two weeks during January intersession or spring break; two to four weeks in the summer; a full semester; or even as long as an academic year.

Planning is key to taking advantage of these exceptional opportunities and we’re here to help. As early as freshman year, you should visit the Office of Study Abroad to discuss your options in addition to consulting with your academic advisers. In fact, you can attend short-term MC faculty-led programs as early as the summer following your freshman year.

To be eligible to study abroad, you must be in good academic standing with a general cumulative GPA of 2.75 or above and not have any holds on your MC student account. You must receive a grade of C or better in your courses abroad to earn academic credit. Learn more about the process of preparing to go abroad here.
