Study Away

Turn challenges into opportunities.studyaway_logo_72pix_transparent.png
Turn opportunities into exploration.
Turn exploration into expanding your worldview.

It isn’t necessary to go abroad to learn about different cultures, discover potential opportunities, and explore unique environments.

MSU Study Away programs offer courses and internships at locations within the United States. Programs allow students to apply classroom knowledge in professional settings.

All programs are open to all majors, with most courses coming from the College of Social Science. However, some programs offer course credit in Arts & Letters, Communication Arts & Sciences, James Madison College and College of Agriculture & Natural Resources.

For more information about Study Away programs, select the appropriate tab on the right side of this page. You will also find application and scholarship information, as well as a list of the upcoming meetings by visiting the associated pages.


If you are unable to attend an informational meeting, we invite you to schedule an appointment to meet with a program coordinator. You can also “Like” Michigan State University College of Social Science on Facebook and follow @MSU_SocSci on Twitter to stay up to date on study and internship program news and events.
