The University of Missouri offers a wealth of study abroad opportunities, and part of your program could be spent studying in some incredible places.  

While more than 120 programs are represented by students studying abroad, there are some opportunities specifically for students of the Truman School. For example, Vice Provost for International Programs and Truman School Associate Professor Mary Stegmaier leads a study abroad program in Kyrgyzstan - "Politics and Society in Central Asia" -  to explore the history that shapes the society, culture, and politics.  

In this program, you’ll earn three credits in political science or public affairs as you hear from practitioners, scholars, and ordinary people about the political, economic, and societal challenges facing Kyrgyzstan and how the government and the international community are working to address them. You will also explore beautiful and significant sites around Kyrgyzstan. 

The next trip to Kyrgyzstan is scheduled for May 20 through June 4, 2023. The deadline to apply is February 15, 2023. For more information, visit The Office of International Programs Study Abroad page.
