Study abroad programs
CMU has a wide variety of programs! Whether you're looking for a short-term summer or faculty-led program, a semester-long or full academic year program, or an international internship we have options for you.
CMU offers short-term study abroad programs led by CMU faculty. You will travel with a group of CMU students. Programs are typically offered during spring break and summer.
CMU works with organizations that will place you in an international internship. All internships are for credit. Students will work closely with a study abroad advisor to select the site and with a faculty advisor to obtain course credit approval.
Internships are a great way to gain relevant industry experience that aligns with your career goals. They can be completed as a requirement for majors/minors or for general elective credit. You can choose from a variety of placements around the globe and build a professional network, while earning essential skills that will help with your job prospects.
