Office of Overseas Study
Students at IU Southeast have the opportunity to participate in any of the academic programs that Indiana University has arranged in other countries. When students participate in these programs, they receive IU credit, and they have the guidance and assistance of IU directors at most sites. Costs are very reasonable. Participants are eligible for financial assistance just as they would be if they were at an IU campus. Contact the Office of Financial Aid for further information on financial aid. In addition, IU and IU Southeast offer some special scholarships to students in overseas study programs. You should contact the Director of International Programs, Dr. Frank Wadsworth, in Hillside Hall 018, (812) 941-2531, or fwadswo [at] ius [dot] edu (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information on study abroad programs and these scholarships. The information is also available on the Web at http://www.indiana.edu/~overseas/.
Summer programs are available in Australia, Austria, Britain, Canada, Denmark, the Dominican Republic, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, the Netherlands, Senegal, Spain, and others. Some of these programs are in English, others focus on language learning, and others focus on specific subject areas such as business or fine arts. There are three study abroad programs based at IU Southeast: one in Ecuador, for education majors, one in tropical biology that goes to sites such as Tahiti and Belize, and another in China to study Chinese culture.
Semester programs are available all around the globe, in countries such as Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Chile, China, the Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Germany, Ghana, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Peru, South Africa, Spain, and Thailand. Some of these programs focus on language learning and may require a high degree of language proficiency, but most are in English or require very little foreign language background.
Academic-year programs are offered in Britain, France, Germany, Ghana, Japan, Spain, and several other locations. Those in France, Germany, and Spain require at least five semesters of language courses as a prerequisite; the program in Japan requires two years.
Applications for academic-year programs are normally due in early January of the year before travel. Applications for semester programs are due early in the previous semester, and those for the summer are due early in the spring semester.
Fliers on individual programs and application forms are available from Frank Wadsworth, Director, International Programs, Hillside Hall. Information from Indiana University is available from its Web site. Information about international programs at IU Southeast is available at the IU Southeast International Programs Web site.
