Major Advising Pages
Education Abroad invites the collaboration of each academic unit in the development of major-specific advising resources to assist students in selecting programs that most closely align with each degree program. MAPs describe academic considerations for education abroad and highlight specific programs approved by faculty and academic advisers. Read more about our Major Advising Pages (MAPs).
New Program Development
Per AR4:9, registration and review by UKIC is required before any international education travel experience may be advertised or represented as approved by or sponsored by the University. Read more about developing a new program.
