SIT Study Abroad offers semester study abroad programs in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East, as well as the International Honors Program. By utilizing a field-based experiential approach to education, these programs offer a unique academic environment to KU students. Programs in all destinations offer undergraduate research through an Independent Study Project and cultural immersion through fieldwork, language classes, and urban and rural homestays with local families.
