Study Abroad Home

Georgia Tech undergraduate students from all majors have the opportunity to attend summer programs and/or semester-long programs abroad.

Summer Study Abroad

The Italian Film Studies program allows students to study film history, theory, and production in a faculty-led visit to northeastern Italy. Students earn six hours of credit that may be directly applied to Science, Technology and Culture (STAC) degree requirements or Computational Media (CM) School of Literature, Media, and Communication (LMC) specialty or elective courses. Three-day weekends provide an opportunity for students to visit nearby Venice, Florence, Rome, or Vienna (with easy trains or flights to other European destinations).

CM students have also traditionally participated in the Barcelona Summer Study Abroad program, to complete requirements for the CS side of the degree. This 10-week program offers CS courses as well as classes in Architecture and Spanish.

Semester-long Programs

Georgia Tech undergraduate students may choose to stay a semester or a year in Denmark, Sweden, or any of Georgia Tech`s other study abroad options.

Starting fall 2009, CM majors may participate in LMC`s newest exchange program, the Copenhagen Institute of Technology Program. Based in Denmark`s dynamic capital, this exchange exposes student to a variety of classes in Digital Media in a semester-long or year-long stay. All courses are taught in English in a program modeled on Georgia Tech`s CM degree. Students may pursue post-study internships to extend their time in Denmark if they choose.

Students may also participate in a more humanities-oriented program at the Blekinge Tekniska Hogskola (BTH) in Karlskrona, Sweden. BTH offers a variety of classes, in English, modeled on LMC`s studio and media studies courses. Classes apply directly to the LMC requirements for the STAC or CM degree. In Southeastern Sweden, Karlskrona features a mild climate with temperatures about five degrees cooler than Atlanta in the winter. It is a short train ride to Copenhagen and cheap flights to other European destinations.

International Plan

LMC undergraduate students may choose to complete the 9 hours of necessary coursework, satisfy the requirements of a language track, and study or work abroad for a total of 26 weeks to earn the International Plan designation on their diploma. This elite program prepares students to be more effective global citizens.
