SMU Abroad adds 100 new programs

Shelby at PetraSMU Abroad is taking students more places in 2009 with the launch of 100 new programs.

Offered in collaboration with the Council on International Education Exchange and other study abroad organizations, the new programs provide opportunities for study, internships and service in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Oceania.

SMU will continue to offer its 30 semester, academic year, winter and summer programs, including discipline-specific programs led by SMU faculty, in locations such as China, England, France, Germany, India, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, Poland, Russia and South Africa.

“By working in partnership with the country’s leading university study-abroad program providers, SMU is able to diversify its programs, the majors who can participate and the locations offered,” says Susan Kress, director of SMU Abroad. “Students now can opt to spend a semester at SMU-in-Paris and follow up with an internship in Senegal.”

The new programs were reviewed and approved by SMU’s Education Abroad Council for academic content and suitability, and follow the recommendations of SMU’s Task Force on International Education to increase opportunities abroad.
