About SIT

The School for International Training (SIT) offers semester and summer programs for undergraduate students in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East, as well as comparative programs in multiple locations.

Programs grapple with the complexities of critical issues — including global health, sustainable development, biodiversity, human rights, migration, and peacebuilding — in specific cultural and geographical contexts or comparatively across different countries.

Students gain high levels of access to a diversity of stakeholders and experts relevant to the issues being examined. Learning extends far beyond the SIT program center to host communities, field stations, nongovernmental organization (NGO) headquarters, ecological sites, health clinics, and art studios.

Students not only acquire a holistic and multifaceted grounding in the issues being examined — they get direct, field-based experience with the multiplicity of ideas, innovations, perspectives, and contacts that can catapult their academic and professional lives.
 



Program Models


SIT Study Abroad offers different types of programs that meet the needs of students with a variety of interests and personal and academic goals. Most programs fall into the following models:
  • Semester-long programs that culminate in a major undergraduate research project
  • Semester-long IHP/comparative programs that travel transnationally to examine a theme in the context of multiple countries
  • Summer programs of six to seven weeks that focus on critical issues and language immersion
  • Summer Innovation Labs that examine basic human needs and culminate in a collaborative project
All SIT Study Abroad programs, regardless of type, grapple with the complexities of critical issues and offer students a high level of access to experts and stakeholders relevant to the issues being examined. Learning on SIT programs extends beyond the program center to provide students with holistic, multifaceted, field-based experiences.
