UMKC has exchange and study agreements with other institutions in many parts of the world. Students have an opportunity to spend a year or a semester of study at the University of Seville in Spain, the University of Lyon II in France, the University of Klagenfurt in Austria and the University of Veracruz in Xalapa, Mexico. Summer programs are held at the University of Veracruz, Mexico; the University of Granada, Spain; and the University of Lyon II, France.
The department encourages students to travel and study abroad on our programs or those offered by any accredited American university. It should be noted, however, that the department must approve in advance any courses taken abroad for major or graduate credit. Interested students should contact the appropriate departmental adviser.
