About the Office

The SMU Abroad Office serves the SMU community by developing and coordinating international programs, and by providing support services during and after the experience abroad. Students at SMU have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of January, May, Summer and semester abroad programs, including academic programs that yield University Curriculum and Common Curriculum credit, major/minor-specific programs, internships, and guided research. These programs may be faculty-led, SMU approved affiliated, hybrid, or virtual abroad programs. Students studying, researching, or interning abroad encounter diverse global communities and intellectual traditions. SMU Abroad programs and global partnerships enhance academic and experiential learning around the world.
