Study Abroad contributes to academic advancement, intellectual and personal growth, and professional development, in addition to helping you to relate to other cultures and intellectual traditions. Together with Michigan State University’s Office of Study Abroad, James Madison College sponsors a variety of Study Abroad programs. You can choose among short-duration, faculty-led programs offered during the Summer or Spring Break, full-semester programs in the Spring or Fall, and internship programs (available in all semesters).
