Office of International Programs

As our world becomes increasingly multicultural and globalized, the value of intercultural competency cultivated through international experiences continues to grow. The Office of International Programs seeks to offer every Middle Georgia State University student an international experience, whether that means that you study here as an international student, participate on one of our study abroad or international service-learning programs, or attend international events on campus.


We help students with

  • Choosing and paying for the right study abroad program.
  • Student visa rules, health insurance, financial and work needs, and adjustment to life in the U.S.
  • Professionalizing their international experience through internships and returnee conferences.
The Office of International Programs also collaborates with faculty to
  • Build new international programs.
  • Publicize professional development opportunities with an international focus.
  • Offer teaching opportunities on USG study abroad programs.
