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.
