Travel Study

Expand Your Horizons. Gain a Global Perspective.

All CMU students are encouraged to study away from the CMU campus through special, faculty-led courses across the U.S. and around the globe; semester-long programs elsewhere in the US; excursions guided by our Outdoor Program; and full-year programs hosted at universities around the world.

At Colorado Mesa University we understand the value of an international study experience to help students succeed in today's complex and interconnected world.

Study Abroad and ISEP

Over the past several years, faculty have led students, alumni, and community members on tours and/or research opportunities to China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Japan, Germany, and Spain.

Colorado Mesa University is also a member of the International Student Exchange Program, allowing students to pay CMU tuition while studying abroad for a semester or academic year. This program allows students to immerse themselves in global academic experiences located in one of 50 countries around the world.
