About Us

The SIS Office of International Programs (OIP) seeks to promote cross-cultural awareness and enhance international understanding by providing students access to opportunities that will support their personal and professional development.

Our office manages approximately 20 semester exchange programs, four international dual degree programs, one joint degree, an average of four short-term abroad programs and supports a wide variety of independent study opportunities for students abroad. SIS actively seeks out partnerships abroad that will meet the needs of our diverse and highly motivated student population.

Most undergraduate exchange programs are typically run through AU Abroad (AU's central study abroad office)--we maintain three undergraduate exchange programs (Sciences Po, Korea University, and Ritsumeikan Univeristy).
