Opportunities and Resources
Study Abroad and Away
Miami consistently ranks among the top universities in the nation for the number of students studying abroad. No matter your major, you're welcome to join the more than 1,500 Miami students each year who earn academic credit through study abroad. Students need to fully grasp the global nature of today's economy, politics, and cultures. Living and learning abroad is a great way to do that.

The skills that dominate the responses year after year are the ones that our students consistently develop in one of our GIC majors: American Studies, Critical Race and Ethnic Studies, International Studies, Latin American Studies or Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies.
