LGBT Themed Study Abroad Programs

How to Find Study Abroad Programs
Many study abroad programs at the University of Michigan are coordinated through the Center for Global and Intercultural Study, which houses both the Office of International Programs (OIP) and Global Intercultural Experiences for Undergraduates (GIEU). Search the OIP website and GIEU website for programs of interest. OIP maintains a partial list of non-OIP programs affiliated with the University of Michigan. The International Center’s Education Abroad Office can help students find and arrange non-University of Michigan study abroad programs. Look at the course listings of the foreign university of your choice to see if there are any LGBT themed courses.
