Program Description:
MIIS Banner
With the International Studies Semester, undergraduate students can spend a semester at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (MIIS) learning from experts in international policy, trade, intercultural study, and global security. Students can access the extraordinary resources at MIIS, enhancing their undergraduate degree with a customized semester of classes available at Middlebury’s Monterey campus.

Plan ahead and apply your Study Away at Monterey (SAAM) semester toward a master’s degree at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies (MIIS). By taking required courses during your Study Away semester, you’ll be able to apply credit toward your master’s and, in some cases, accelerate your degree.  The Middlebury Institute offers master's degrees in language and international policy (development, trade, environmental, and security).
