Critical Global Issues

What issue(s) are you interested in studying abroad?

SIT’s study abroad programs are developed around a framework of the most critical global issues of our time — challenges that transcend borders to touch every human on the planet. We have developed this framework so that the next generation of leaders has the expertise and intercultural understanding to engage multiple identities, perspectives, and cultures in respectful, enduring, and meaningful responses.

SIT Study Abroad programs are interdisciplinary and appropriate for a variety of majors. This gives students the opportunity to grapple with the complexities of today’s most pressing issues in specific cultural and geographical contexts or comparatively across several countries.
