The Institute for Global Studies (IGS) coordinates over 70 programs annually, with a specialization in short term, faculty-led programs. Courses are available from an array of disciplines and fulfill a variety of requirements. Semester-long and exchange programs are also available for students looking to gain more cultural immersion and, if relevant to their course of study, greater language acquisition. Browse our database of programs to see where your next academic adventure may be.
