Student Experience

Global passions

“I am really interested in everything,” says Audrey Muston, SGIS Class of 2017. “After every course I took, I felt I needed to dive into it 100 percent and change to that degree program.”

If students like Audrey—passionately absorbed by the world and ready to learn and explore—sound like your people, come join us.

At SGIS, courses and research are important. But it’s the SGIS experience that’s irreplaceable. You’ll have the chance to dive into a language and a culture and then take flight to the countries where it’s spoken. You’ll find internships and community service opportunities so that you can gain hands-on experience before you graduate.

Audrey’s biggest problem while she’s been at SGIS has limiting herself to only two majors. She finally chose International Studies and Near Eastern Languages and Culture. Audrey began studying Arabic at SGIS and spent a semester at a university in Aman, Jordan. “I loved it,” she says. “I lived with a host family. And I made the best friends of my life.”
