Study Abroad

Study abroad fits perfectly into the honors experience. The Honors College seeks to break down the traditional divide between classroom and life. Study abroad opportunities sustain this kind of learning through international travel and study.

Most summers, the Honors College offers an exciting one-month study abroad program designed exclusively for honors students to Ireland or Scotland. In addition, UMKC offers many other study-abroad programs suitable for honors students. We encourage our students to study abroad with any program they choose. Visit International Academic Programs for complete information on all study abroad opportunities at UMKC.
