With SIT I was not only able to tailor my academic focus throughout the program, but also conduct in-depth research on a subject of my choosing.

Semester program highlights:

  • Advance your knowledge of a specific critical global issue such as global health, migration, social change, human rights, education, arts and media, and sustainable development
  • Earn 16 or 17 credits — SIT students earn 16 or 17 undergraduate credits upon successful completion of a semester program (and between 4 and 9 credits for a summer program).
  • Gain new language proficiency — Learn or advance your knowledge of another language including Spanish, French, Chinese, Arabic, Hindi, Malagasy, Kiswahili, Icelandic, Wolof, and many others.
  • Learn how to conduct undergraduate field research abroad — SIT semester programs strongly emphasize field-based undergraduate research. SIT faculty and staff provide students with relevant coursework instruction, field experience, and guidance in order for them to be able to complete a major undergraduate research project that can serve as a springboard for future achievements such as senior theses or Fulbright proposals.
  • Live with local host families often in both urban and rural settings to acquire different and meaningful vantage points from within the host country
  • Study with a small group of students in each program, while being supported by SIT faculty and staff, homestay families, in-country experts, and community members
