The International Education and Exchange Programs (IEEP) office provides opportunities for UM students to acquire an international perspective in their academic career through studying abroad on UM sponsored programs or at UM exchange partner universities overseas. IEEP offers an extensive array of overseas programs in over 45 countries. The UM-sponsored programs are UM semesters delivered on location in Rome, Prague, Cusco, Cape Town, and the Galapagos and short-term programs led by UM faculty in Latin America, Asia, Europe, South Africa, and other locations. The faculty-led programs take place during the January Intersession, Spring Break, and the Summer Sessions. Students receive UM credits and UM grades, and the courses are taught by UM professors and/or professors from overseas universities who are experts in their academic fields.
