The Center for Global and Intercultural Study has opportunities for U-M students to spend a semester or summer abroad in a Slavic country. Remember to check with your Slavic major or minor advisor before you leave if you plan to have any study abroad credits count toward your Slavic degree.
*Due to the current political and public health situation in Russia, CGIS has suspended study abroad programs in Russia through the Winter 2023 term.
Other Study Abroad Resources
There are many study abroad programs available that are not sponsored by U-M. These programs may or may not count for credit or towards distribution or major requirements. Please consult with the LSA Academic Advising Center and your Slavic department advisor for advice on transfer credits before enrolling in non-U-M programs.
The CREES website has a list of programs at other US colleges and universities, as well as a list of other program providers.
