Education Abroad

Morehead State University houses its education abroad office in 350A Rader Hall. Morehead State University offers undergraduate students a variety of study abroad opportunities in various countries around the world. The majority of these programs grant academic credit upon successful completion of the program. For any study abroad program that awards academic credit, the student may apply for student loans or grants for which they would normally be eligible.

As a member of the Cooperative Center for Study Abroad consortium, the University is able to send faculty and students to England, Scotland, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, Barbados and Kenya for educational offerings in a variety of subject areas. Programs are scheduled during the December/January interim, summer sessions or the spring semester. Internships are also available each spring in Dublin and London. Students can earn from three to six credit hours depending upon the length of the program in which they are enrolled.

MSU is a participant in the Kentucky Institute for International Studies, a consortium allowing University faculty and students to travel to study centers around the world, including France, Austria, Italy, Greece, Spain, Brazil, Cameroon, China, Costa Rica, Denmark, Ecuador, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Thailand, Myanmar (Burma) and Turkey. Courses are offered during the summer sessions and focus on languages, the humanities, social sciences, business, education and environmental sciences. Full semester programs are also available in Germany, France, Mexico and Spain.
