The universe of study away programs is - like the physical universe - vast, mysterious, and expanding. At the International Center we bring order out of chaos by steering our students toward those programs and universities most suitable for Macalester students.

We maintain a list of approved programs which offer high quality academic and intercultural experiences. Programs on the list have been reviewed for their fit with Macalester’s learning outcomes for study away keeping in mind a need to balance diversity of geographic regions and appropriate representation of academic disciplines.

Our advising process is designed to help students sort through the options to find a program that is a good match for their personal and academic goals for study away.
