CIS Abroad Response to COVID-19. Updates here.


Experience the best semester of your life abroad.

Studying abroad can help you crush your academic goals while adding a deep cultural experience in an engaging new location. No matter your major, we’ve got a semester abroad program for you. Study Ecology in Tropical North Queensland? Sure. Study Aviation courses in sunny Greece? Prepare for takeoff. Study Art and Fashion in Florence? Ciao.

CIS Abroad partners with accredited universities that offer innovative courses to help you meet your academic goals, whether you want to fill in some general education requirements or take classes in your major to stay on track for graduation.

Gain experience interning in your field abroad!

Imagine working abroad at a placement customized just for you, adding new skills to your resume and potentially even earning credit back at your U.S. university. Internships abroad can be an affordable way to have an international experience AND make your future job applications stand out from the crowd.

CIS Abroad’s internship programs offer the same on-site support as all of our other programs, which integrates housing with activities, so you’ll still have a community of friends while you work abroad. Plus, with placements available in 20 fields, there’s something for every major!

Explore during January term abroad!

Make the most of your winter break or January term by studying abroad! Need to escape the cold? Costa Rica is calling your name. Want a whirlwind of adventure? Choose one of our exciting multicountry programs, like Mediterranean Food Culture, & Society: Spain, Italy, & Greece or Islamic Civilization in History: France, Morocco, & Spain.

CIS Abroad’s January programs are great for taking a class or two toward your major, minor or electives, practicing language skills, and of course – exploring new environments and local cultures.

Live the summer of a lifetime abroad!

Our summer program options offer an experience you’ll never forget, from innovative multicountry programs (think European Entrepreneurship Studies – Barcelona, Berlin, & London) to in-depth experiences in one location (think Summer in Vietnam – Photography, Fashion, & Innovation).

On CIS Abroad’s summer programs, expect a great mix of cultural activities, excursions, opportunities for additional travel, and the support of our amazing on-site staff. All this AND credits toward your major or gen eds? We can’t think of a more memorable summer!
