Other programs that may be of interest to students in the Department of English and Philosophy

Semester programs:
MSU offers a number of low-cost semester exchange programs around the world.  Students can take classes taught in English in the fields of literature, writing, TESOL, philosophy. They also provide great opportunities for students to work on their foreign language proficiency or get some of their University Studies credits taken care of.  Semester-long programs are available at quality, accredited universities in Chile, China, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Spain, and South Korea.
Many more semester-length options are available through trusted study abroad providers.  Speak to an Education Abroad Advisor to help identify the best program for you.

Short-term programs:
Short term programs range from 1 week Spring Break to the entire summer.  Shorter programs allow you to "test the waters" and give you more options for how to fit study abroad into a busy schedule.  You still receive academic credit on these programs, and there are a variety of courses, lengths of programs and locations to choose from.

Of particular interest to students in the Department of English and Philosophy may be programs where electives, University Studies, or other program requirements are offered.  For example, SED 300 Education Students with Disabilities is a required course for secondary English Education cerfication, TESOL certification, and the TESOL undergraduate major and is offered abroad in India this Winter.

Internships, research, and teaching abroad:
This is a growing area that many MSU students have already taken advantage of. International internships and research opportunities are a great way to get on-the-job experience and network within the community of international scholarship.
