About SIT

SIT Study Abroad offers semester and summer programs for undergraduate students in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East, as well as comparative programs in multiple locations.

Programs grapple with the complexities of critical issues — including global health, sustainable development, biodiversity, human rights, migration, and peacebuilding — in specific cultural and geographical contexts or comparatively across different countries.

Students gain high levels of access to a diversity of stakeholders and experts relevant to the issues being examined. Learning extends far beyond the SIT program center to host communities, field stations, nongovernmental organization (NGO) headquarters, ecological sites, health clinics, and art studios.

Students not only acquire a holistic and multifaceted grounding in the issues being examined — they get direct, field-based experience with the multiplicity of ideas, innovations, perspectives, and contacts that can catapult their academic and professional lives.

SIT programs examine:

  • Arts, Media, and Social Change
  • Development, Urban Studies, and Entrepreneurship
  • Global Health
  • Multiculturalism, Migration, and Indigenous Peoples
  • Natural Resource Management, Biodiversity, and Environmental Policy
  • Post-Conflict Transformation
  • Social Movements, Education, and Human Rights
