Thinking About Studying Abroad?

Millikin believes that in order to truly understand the global economy in which we live and work, we must immerse ourselves into our international world. For that reason, Millikin students have the opportunity to live and study in other countries where they participate in lectures, group projects, company visits, and cultural tours. The Center for International Education (CIE) at Millikin University is proud to sponsor several ongoing international opportunities. With the CIE you can live and study all around the world in places such as London, China, Spain, Ireland, and many more for a few weeks (with immersions, including summer courses), or for a full semester.
