With programs scattered across 4 different regions, CGIS can help you fulfill your major/minor & language requirements abroad in programs ranging in length from 4 weeks to a full academic year! Start your journey today by clicking on a region that you're interested in traveling to! If you're not sure which country you want to visit, don't worry! You can explore a complete list of our current programs below and if you have any questions, CGIS is here to help.
CGIS is available Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm (unless otherwise noted).
CGIS works with various partners and providers on-site to provide U-M students with an impactful international experience while also allowing them to satisfy major/minor requirements at the same time. On top of working with various international providers, CGIS also works with U-M faculty to provide unique custom programs that allow students to study special topics while engaging with communities around the world. CGIS offers opportunities to satsify their LSA language requirements abroad; Global Intercultural Experience for Undergraduates (GIEUs), which are project-based service learning programs; Global Course Connections, which consists of two components: an on-campus course during winter semester and a 3-4 week off-campus field experience that takes place during the summer; and CGIS customized programs, which are designed to make study abroad more accessible for students with busy schedules during the summer. Explore these options below!
We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research and to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, CGIS needs your support.
