Do you have international or area study interests?
The University of Michigan International Institute (II) houses 17 centers and programs focused on specific world regions and global themes. Our centers rank among the nation’s finest in their respective fields of study and bring together faculty experts from across the U-M campus. We are looking for students who have an interest in, or wish to focus on a particular world region or country, as part of their studies or for their own enrichment.
Benefits of connecting with our Centers:
- Graduate student email lists for information on each Center's activities, lectures, events, job news, conferences, funding opportunities, etc.
- Course lists for the various regions or countries of interest.
- Certificate in Graduate Studies programs focusing on some regions, open to students from any graduate program to enhance your current area of study
- Invitations to special events where you can connect with other students and faculty from around the University who have the same regional interests.
Please note that programs and benefits vary from Center to Center.
