Faculty-Led Global Academy Courses

What makes these programs different from “regular” study abroad?

  • Expert course content and leadership from NMU faculty and staff
  • Travel portion of the course is short-term and intensive
  • Great option for students on a tight $$$ budget
  • Flexible option for students whose NMU schedule is packed during the fall and winter
  • Travel with friends – old and new – a secure strategy for students who are new to international travel.
