Study Abroad


Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

Truman offers many opportunities for students to study abroad. Please see the Courses section of this catalog for Truman-sponsored faculty-led courses and program details.

MISSION STATEMENT

With change being a constant in our lives, higher education takes on greater significance in preparing students to meet new and unexpected challenges. One challenge involves enriching the global perspective of the curriculum. Truman recognizes its responsibility to Missouri, the nation, and the world in preparing students who possess international understanding and potential for leadership. The University also recognizes that worldwide understanding is a characteristic of liberally educated persons.

Truman recognizes that boundaries between peoples, cultures and countries of the world are becoming less significant. Therefore, the realities and possibilities of globalizing the Truman curriculum at home and abroad are explored. Expansion of foreign language and culture programs, additional exchange agreements with international institutions, increases in the number of international scholars and students coming to the Truman campus, and increases in the number of Truman students and faculty participating in study abroad programs are identified means of promoting international understanding.

ALL STUDY ABROAD EXPERIENCES APPROVED FOR ACADEMIC CREDIT AT TRUMAN FULFILL THE INTERCULTURAL REQUIREMENT OF THE LIBERAL STUDIES PROGRAM.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTIONS

Truman is continually trying to improve existing programs and develop new ones. Students are therefore encouraged to contact the Center for International Education / Study Abroad (CIE) to get the latest information on Truman study abroad programs. The Center also provides information regarding how study abroad program credits can be applied to the core curriculum requirement, the foreign language requirement, or in some cases the major requirement. Since it takes a long time to plan and finance a study abroad experience, students are strongly encouraged to find out about these exciting opportunities early, perhaps in their freshman year. The CIE is located in Kirk Building 114, telephone 660-785-4076 and e-mail ciea@truman.edu.

SEMESTER EXCHANGE PROGRAMS

These programs are the most affordable of all study abroad programs; however, they are generally highly selective, often with very specific requirements, and taught in the language of the country at a local accredited institution of higher education. Students may participate for a semester or academic year, depending on the program.
