Study Abroad

MAS strongly encourages students to study abroad prior to graduation. MAS does not currently have any MAS-based study abroad programs. However, the Office of International Programs has programs throughout the year that our students may benefit from. Often-times these programs offer coursework that may count towards your major or minor. Short-term programs are available during the Winter break, Minimester, Summer I, and Summer II. Long-term programs are available in the Fall and Spring semesters.

MAS students have studied abroad long-term in Argentina and short-term in Spain.
