Study Abroad

The Department of Social Sciences offers undergraduate students diverse opportunities for real-world archaeological fieldwork and research, international experience, and professional development.

If you are ready to take your education abroad, consider the Study Abroad program. Study abroad typically varies from one semester to one year in length. The benefits of international study and travel include intercultural awareness, sensitivity, and communication skills, as well as exposure to different geographic regions, perspectives, and cultures of the world.

At this time Michigan Tech is continuing to plan for successful study abroad trips in summer 2016.

Spend five weeks participating in the first study abroad edition of Global Issues. Visit Paris, France, and London, England, to gain lifelong memories at popular museums, historic sites, and excursions in daily life in a foreign city.
