Semester Programs

Truman offers a wide variety of programs that allow students the opportunity to live and study at a university abroad for a semester or an academic year. Semester programs give students the chance to integrate with a local community and grow personally while still completing their Truman degree. Many of these programs offer course instruction in English, so knowledge of a foreign language is not necessary to attend classes.

Semester programs are broken into two types: Exchange and Direct Enrollment. For an exchange program, students pay Truman tuition fees & the host university’s room and board fees; whereas, in a direct enrollment program, students pay the costs of the host institution. In most instances, the student experience does not differ. For more information on the programs offered, click on the buttons below.

Truman also offers its own exchange programs through established partnerships with foreign universities. Exchange programs last for either a semester or academic year, and students pay Truman tuition fees & the host university’s room and board fees.  For these programs, contact our study abroad office and we will assist you to begin your application.
