A Miami University credit workshop includes one or several Miami University courses, but they are flexibly scheduled and offered in various locations: on campus, online, in the US, or abroad. The courses vary in length and content.

Key features of credit workshops

  • Workshops offer Miami credit – exactly the same credit a student receives in a traditional course on campus.
  • A faculty member may offer a related group of existing courses or newly developed courses and teach them at an abroad location.
  • Credit may fulfill Miami major or minor requirements and some workshops meet a Miami Plan requirement, or independent study and research program requirements. For example, a student can receive six credits of a language in about four weeks of intensive cultural study abroad, allowing for time during the standard fall or spring term to enroll in other courses and stay on track toward degree requirements.

All workshops must be approved by Global Initiatives and (if seeking Miami Plan credit) by Liberal Education Council. For more information on creating and offering an international workshop, please review the Global Initiatives website.
