Study Abroad

Learning at Truman extends far beyond the classroom—and the traditional semesters. We offer students and the local community opportunities to explore learning in new and exciting ways, and in new and exciting places.

Honors Scholar Program
Every student at Truman is eligible to participate in the Honors Scholar Program, which includes courses that explore in-depth topics with a more sophisticated viewpoint than the usual introductory-level liberal arts and sciences courses.

McNair Program
This program seeks to increase doctoral degrees among students from underrepresented groups by making sure students earn their bachelor’s degrees on time and are encouraged to pursue further education. The program provides a variety of academic support services to further this goal, including mentoring, tutoring, scholarly activities, and more.

Truman Institute
A hub of enrichment opportunities, the Truman Institute is a resource for the surrounding community and distance learners. It serves K–12 learners, adults seeking professional development and continuing education, retirees seeking personal enrichment, graduates looking for specialized certificate programs, and young scholars pursuing college courses in a summer camp environment.

Peace Corps Prep Program
No matter what area of study you pursue at Truman, you can enroll in our Peace Corps Prep Program which offers coursework and field experiences relevant to international service.

Study Abroad
As a Truman student, you have the opportunity to live and study in another country, choosing from more than 50 countries as your learning destination. Some of the study-abroad programs require little or no knowledge of a foreign language, while others provide an opportunity for you to enhance your competency in another language. One of the best ways to learn more about study abroad is to look at our Study Abroad Blog.

Undergraduates have numerous funding opportunities through fellowships to pursue independent and collaborative research, either on campus, in the community, or even abroad.

Summer Programs
Students can pursue even more of their interests by enrolling in Truman’s five- or eight-week-long summer sessions, which include online classes and convenient scheduling that still leaves time for relaxation and vacation in between semesters.

Service Learning
By combining community service with academic study, Truman students make connections across a variety of disciplines that teach the value of making a difference in the world and not just simply participating in it.

Above all else, Truman has given me the resources and opportunities to be able to sculpt myself into the best possible student, citizen, and person that I can be.
