We have established partnerships with local and international colleges and universities to give you more opportunities to develop expertise in your areas of focus.

Local Colleges and Universities

California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB)

Students from all programs may take up to four credits per semester at California State University, Monterey Bay, for no additional tuition. In particular, CSUMB offers courses in environmental science and marine conservation, which might be of interest to International Environmental Policy students.

Naval Postgraduate School (NPS)

The Middlebury Institute has strong ties with NPS and this partnership extends students’ access to a broad array of courses within the Department of National Security Affairs and Department of Defense Analysis. Students gain experience working with military officers, exposing them to new perspectives on important international security issues. The officers range from Foreign Area Officers who will go on to work in embassies as defense attachés to special operations forces, and students benefit from their expanded network.

Student Exchange Program Abroad

American University in Cairo (Cairo, Egypt)

The Middlebury Institute and the American University in Cairo (AUC) offer student exchanges each semester. AUC is a leading English language, American-accredited institution of higher education and a center of intellectual, social, and cultural life in the Arab world. This highly competitive program, intended for students studying the Arabic language, encourages students to think critically and find creative solutions to conflicts while pursuing language development and cultural exploration.
