variety of study abroad destinations

MSU Denver provides students with a wide variety of options for studying abroad. The Office of International Studies offers programs in over 60 countries, in nearly 150 areas of study, for any length of time from 2 weeks to 1 year. Courses are able to fulfill major and minor requirements in a range of disciplines, and electives. Each type of program is unique and operates differently. Depending on your wants and needs, you will work with a study abroad advisor to find the program type that suits your individual situation.

I would say if you're stuck between going and not going, just do it. It's a wonderful experience and I learned a lot not just about myself but others as well, and you see some incredible things. Mariah Russell, Czech Republic, Summer 2014

MSU Denver collaborates with 3rd party organizations to create optimal study abroad experience for students. Programs can be short term (3 weeks) or full academic years. Many MSU Denver students use these programs because there are opportunities world-wide with all types of courses available. Each provider we work with is based in the US and has international offices and staff in every study abroad location. Resident directors are available to help with the student’s needs, from course registration to housing issues to natural disasters. All of our partnership programs are properly accredited and students will earn credit towards their degree. Students work directly with their MSU Denver study abroad advisor and program of choice to research options and complete application materials. 

To be eligible to study abroad with a program, students must first complete an application through MSU Denver. At the time of application, students must:

  • Be currently enrolled at MSU Denver
  • Have a 2.5 minimum GPA
  • Have 12 completed MSU Denver credits (not transfer credits)
  • Not plan to graduate the same semester abroad

*We understand that students have a variety of circumstances that might stop them from meeting each requirement, and there are processes students can follow to receive exceptions from the requirements. Contact a study abroad advisor.

**Students will also have to meet the basic eligibility requirements of their program choice, and those can be different than MSU Denver's requirements (higher GPA's, student level, completed coursework, etc.)
