Interested in studying away in Hawaii? Faculty leaders Gretal Vanwieren and Gerald Erickson will be holding an information on Thursday, February 13th to answer your questions about this program. Michigan State University’s Study Away Program in Hawaii combines field and classroom experience in a culturally rich setting which provides students with an opportunity to expand their worldview without leaving the U.S. This program is designed for all undergraduate students in all majors. The multi-ethnic nature of the Hawaiian community encourages interaction with others from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds and enhances the academic and internship experiences.
The program offers an academic focus on Hawaii culture, tourism and other social issues and includes class meetings with University of Hawaii professor and students, field experiences and community service work. Note that students can fulfill an upper-level IAH, among other course options, as part of the program.
