International Summer Institutes
These study abroad programs are 2-8 weeks in length and focus on a particular theme. Most are held at partner universities overseas, but are led by a Montclair State faculty member with expertise in that region who accompanies the group and enhances their understanding and experience. Participants travel as a group, although weekends are often free for individual travel, and the program cost typically includes airfare, housing, some meals, museum entrance fees, guest lectures and administrative costs. Most programs involve a number of course options from which each participant selects two courses for six credits or three courses for nine credits. Participants register through Montclair State University Summer Sessions and receive Montclair State credits that may fulfill major, minor and general education requirements.   These programs are also open to students at other universities who register as Visiting Students and receive a Montclair State University transcript for transfer credit to their home institution, and some programs are open to non-students wishing Professional Development Units. Programs and destinations may vary each year.
