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
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.
The Middlebury Institute has strong ties with NPS and this partnership extends students’ access to a broad array of courses within the National Security Affairs and the Defense Analysis Departments. 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 Programs Abroad
We have established student exchange programs with prestigious international universities to provide students with more opportunities for higher-language development and cultural immersion.
Middlebury Institute students have the opportunity every summer to interact with diverse students from all over the world while being taught by Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) faculty and leading experts in natural resource management and policy, or in business model innovation. This two-week program is tuition free and there are nominal costs for housing and transportation.
The Middlebury Institute maintains a selective exchange agreement with Waseda University, one of the most prestigious universities in Japan. Waseda University offers comprehensive degree programs at the graduate level as well as in professional schools such as the business school and the law school. Students can take courses both in English and Japanese, and may further develop their language proficiency through Japanese language courses.
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.
