Education Abroad

Experience the World

There are many excellent education abroad programs available to Morehead State University (MSU) students and faculty. MSU is a member of several consortia and has a number of collaborative exchange agreements with foreign universities. International study experiences include short (summer/winter/spring) or long (semester/year) programs, as well as internships abroad. Academic credit is available for most education options. Financial aid can often be obtained and scholarships may be available with some programs.

Also, our International Education Resources page provides links to additional sites with information concerning such things as preparation for travel abroad, travel insurance, travel advisories, health issues, other education-abroad options and government resources, such as the US State Department and the United Nations home page.

For more information, contact Dr. Sylvia Henneberg at 606-783-5288.

Education Abroad Office

MSU has a new study abroad office on campus. Our office is designed to operate as a one-stop-shop for students and faculty interested in learning about the education abroad options available to them through MSU. We provide resources and guidance related to scholarship opportunities and preparation for traveling abroad. 

During the Spring 2017 semester, our office will remain in 350A Rader Hall, and is open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.

We encourage you to take a look at the program descriptions below and reach out to our office and the appropriate campus representatives.
