Millsaps Study Abroad Program Vision Statement
Study Abroad at Millsaps College provides students with a powerful tool for understanding and appreciating our complex world. Because Study Abroad is crucial to undergraduate and graduate education, we encourage all students to consider participating fully in the Millsaps experience by taking advantage of the many Study Abroad opportunities available.
Selecting and Planning for a Study Abroad Program
Millsaps College supports study abroad for its students and encourages them to start early with their plans. Millsaps sponsors summer programs taught by Millsaps professors abroad. You may also select from the many accredited programs sponsored by other institutions.
In selecting a program, some things to consider are:
Once you have narrowed down the field of possibilities, think about the kinds of courses you will take and how they will fit into your overall plan. You should gather as much information about the potential courses as you can get, including course descriptions, syllabi, and reading lists. For courses you wish to substitute for Millsaps College courses, it will be necessary to have the department chair sign a course substitution form, which you can get from the International Student & Scholar Programs Coordinator. Be sure that you have these signatures BEFORE you go abroad.
You should begin this planning a year in advance of departure. It is even better to include this as part of your overall study plan when you enter Millsaps as a freshman. If you start soon enough, you can be sure you will find the program you need and you will have time to do the necessary paperwork in advance to ensure a smooth transition.
