Overseas Study Programs by Major

A student may apply for any program as long as they meet the eligibility requirements (semesters of school, language background, GPA, etc). The greatest opportunity to earn credit will be on the following types of programs:

  • Mainstreamed programs in English-speaking countries (Mainstreamed programs involve taking regular classes with host national students)
  • Mainstreamed programs that require proficiency in another language
  • Programs for Americans taught in English or other languages

In addition to courses specific to their major, students can take courses that fulfill other major, minor, distribution, or elective requirements. Students should be prepared to show course materials to the department, for final course approval, at the conclusion of the program.



In an increasingly competitive global economy, the international dimension of education is becoming more and more important. Indeed, it is a matter of practical necessity: we have to provide it as a part of a good education, and students increasingly demand it."

-IU President Michael A. McRobbie
