CALS Study Abroad, in partnership with International Academic Programs (IAP), offers a variety of international academic experiences for students of all majors! These include Short-Term Field Experiences, Summer Research Opportunities, and Semester-Long Exchange Programs at top universities around the world.
Field Experiences are led by UW-Madison faculty and typically involve 12-18 students who travel together for 2-3 three weeks during winter, spring, or summer break. They are thematic in nature and often involve partnering with a local organization in the host community on a shared project.
As part of Summer Research Opportunities, students are matched by UW-Madison faculty with a mentor at a partner university or facility abroad where students engage in cutting-edge research in an outstanding and international environment.
Exchange programs allow students to enroll in classes for a semester or a year at a university abroad, providing a culturally and academically immersive experience. Exchange partners offer courses in English as well as the local language.
