SIS currently offers a one-of-a-kind dual undergraduate degree program with Ritsumeikan University in Japan. This program allows undergraduate students to earn two BA degrees from two universities in two years. With degrees granted in two countries, students participating in the dual degree programs gain the knowledge, skills, and practical experience to excel in careers in both countries.
SIS undergraduate semester abroad programs provide current students with the unique opportunity to earn AU credit while studying at a partner institution. Students spend one or two semesters taking courses alongside their international counterparts and are fully integrated in student life at the host campus. Students who attend these programs find that the coursework done abroad complements their AU degrees and enriches their intercultural understanding.
SIS organizes a number of short-term, faculty-led, experiential programs abroad each summer. Program locations change each summer to reflect the needs and interests of the student population. The detailed curricula of the programs make them ideal for students who wish to concentrate on a specific region or topic area. Each one offers ample opportunity to interact with local and regional leaders, conduct field research, and engage in challenging internship positions.
AU Abroad also offers undergraduate semester and summer study abroad programs.
