Critical Global Issues
What issue(s) are you interested in studying abroad?
SIT Study Abroad programs give students the opportunity to grapple with the complexities of critical issues such as global health, sustainable development, biodiversity, human rights, migration, peacebuilding, and many other issues — in specific cultural and geographical contexts or comparatively across different countries.
The themes below do not capture all areas of interest, however. For example, students interested in journalism should check out programs such as Morocco: Field Studies in Journalism and New Media as well as Serbia, Bosnia, and Kosovo: Peace and Conflict Studies in the Balkans and South Africa: Social and Political Transformation (which offer journalism tracks).
SIT Study Abroad programs are interdisciplinary and appropriate for a wide variety of majors.
