Study Abroad

Honors students are strongly encouraged to seek study abroad opportunities. Ideally, students should plan to complete study abroad experiences during the summer or during the fall of the junior year. Students can count a maximum of nine semester hours from study abroad experiences toward the Honors College graduation requirements. In some instances, three hours may apply as upper-division interdisciplinary seminar credit if the course qualifies and approval is granted before the trip dates.

There are four types of approved study abroad programs:

  1. Consortium programs (e.g. CCSA, KIIS)
  2. Exchange programs (e.g. ISEP)
  3. MTSU faculty-directed programs
  4. Independent programs.
