SPEA Related Programs
Indiana University sponsors many study abroad opportunities outside the SPEA Abroad programs that may be of interest to SPEA students. At this time, SPEA Abroad scholarships are only available to SPEA students participating in SPEA Abroad programs and may not be applied toward SPEA-related programs. Further, students should check credit transfer rules with their academic advisor or faculty advisor before enrolling in a SPEA-related program.
Below is a list of programs that SPEA students may wish to learn more about, but we also encourage students to visit the Indiana University for more information on SPEA-related programs. The link below is an Excel file containing all approved SPEA Related programs by country and program and contains the courses available in those programs.
