Guide to Choosing a Program
CGIS offers a wide variety of programs in over 50 different countries, both English-speaking and non-English-speaking, on every inhabited continent.
Here's the short version:
CGIS Programs (travel is 6 weeks or longer):
- Are you looking for a traditional study abroad experience, where you take classes at a foreign university for a summer, semester, or a year?
- Or, are you studying French, Spanish, Italian, or Mandarin and hoping to finish your language requirement abroad? Check out CGIS Programs!
CGIS Short-Term Programs (travel is 3 to 4 weeks):
- Interested in developing relationships with and learning from host communities, expanding your worldview through intensive intercultural curricula? Check out Global Intercultural Experience for Undergraduates (GIEU), our 3-4 week service learning experience—it's not your everyday study abroad program!
- Short on time and enthusiastic about learning outside the classroom? Global Course Connections (GCC) are study abroad experiences that usually take place over spring term, and are connected to specific U-M classes.
Of course, the best way to figure out what program fits your needs is attending a RSGG session.
