The Global Center at Missouri Western exists to offer Missouri Western students the opportunity to enrich their educational experience on many fronts, including by studying abroad, on a campus somewhere across the globe or on a trip led by an MWSU faculty member. Missouri Western has institutional affiliations with several universities around the world and can make other arrangements with domestic organizations that study abroad and exchange opportunities in other places to expand our reach across the globe. In addition, the Global Center support several study abroad opportunities each year that are led by our own Missouri Western faculty. Study abroad and exchange programs vary in length, but can last as short as a week or extend to an entire academic year.

Students wishing to participate in a study abroad or an exchange program are encouraged to contact the Global Center staff in Eder 101, either by visiting us in person, or using the contact form on our webpage at missouriwestern.edu/global/study-abroad.
