International Perspectives

In the 21st century, nearly all careers will have some degree of global interaction. As our world becomes more connected, successful professionals must be able to work across cultures with people of diverse backgrounds and global viewpoints. Eastern Michigan University's Academic Programs Abroad office is ready to help graduate students meet these challenges through a number of study abroad opportunities. It also offers programs designed for international graduate students.

Eastern offers study and travel programs for an array of disciplines throughout the academic year. We have established partnerships with academic institutions in nearly 30 countries, from Australia and Asia to Europe and Latin America.

Eastern also serves as a hub of activity for about 1,000 international students from more than 80 countries. More than half of these students are studying at the graduate level. These intensely curious and motivated students enrich our academic environment by sharing their global perspectives. A large number of Eastern faculty members have also studied or trained abroad, creating more opportunities for cultural insights.

To learn more about study abroad opportunities available through Eastern, consult your academic advisor and contact the Academic Programs Abroad office. Our staff will guide you through the process and ensure that your academic and personal study abroad experience is rewarding.

EMU has a Master's International degree program with the Peace Corps for students interested in the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). Many undergraduate and master's students may use a Peace Corps experience as an Internship or Practicuum for degree completion.
