In collaboration with International Academic Programs, the College of Arts and Sciences helps make available to its students a variety of study abroad programs that provide an exciting way to add a global dimension to their UMKC education through exploring and sharing the cultures of other countries.

Study abroad programs are available for a summer, a semester or an academic year. Students can earn credit towards their degree, and with careful planning, they should lose no time toward graduation.
