International Programs

The Honors College provides unique and exclusive study abroad programs for our students, designed with a customized curriculum, cutting-edge experiential learning opportunities, and through partnerships with global institutions. Our programs are not “trips” but rather they are fully articulated and intensive programs of study that put students square in the middle of the issues and content. These programs immerse our students in the culture, context, and challenges of understanding the world from a different perspective and place.

Honors Study Abroad (HSA)


Honors International Student Exchange (HISE)

  • The Hague, The Netherlands [Den Haag, Nederlands] – The Hague University of Applied Sciences

MU Honors College students can study at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (De Haagse Hogeschool) in the fields of Communications, Business, and European Studies as exchange students, paying MU tuition, and live for six months in the political capital (and capital of international justice) of Den Haag.

Den Haag is a cosmopolitan city of several hundred thousand, that spans from the suburbs of Delft (home of the famous blue Delftware) all the way to Scheveningen on the coast (where Van Gogh painted many of his first sea-side works). Its famous museums include the Mauritshuis, the M.C. Escher Museum, the Dutch National Archives, and the Gallery of Prince Wilhelm V. But it is also a vibrant city filled with global corporations (Dutch Royal Shell, among others), and the numerous international courts, including the International Criminal Court, the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Tribunal for Former Yugoslavia, and others.

THU is a global university as well, and numerous partnerships with universities around the world. Much of the curriculum is taught in English, and students will have opportunities to participate in several unique programs.
