Maybe you want to be an adventurer — exploring foreign lands, meeting new people and traveling off the beaten path. Maybe you want to dig into history, art or culture and really live it rather than reading about it. Perhaps you want to discover yourself, gaining the independence and confidence that comes with self-knowledge.
Believe it or not, all these experiences and skills you develop abroad will help you mature personally and academically as well as enhance your future career opportunities.
Study abroad programs are available for an intersession, a summer, a semester or an academic year. You can earn credit toward your degree program, and with careful planning, should lose no time toward graduation. Study abroad is affordable because financial aid and scholarships are applicable to most programs, and other grants and scholarships are available specifically for study abroad.
For more information about programs offered through MU and other accredited schools, you should visit the International Center's resource room. Study-abroad peer advisers are on hand to help with program selection and applications.
