International Studies

LA 700 (406) 657-1705

Who am I?  What is my place in this world?  The International Studies Program seeks to engage students in a process of awakening.  Through various study abroad programs and the International Studies Minor, students begin to experience the complexity of cultures and the richness of diversity.  The end result produces students who are involved, lifelong learners, with a concern for the world in which we live, and an ability to become leaders who think of future generations.

The Office of International Studies (OIS), provides support services for current and prospective international students, the International Studies Club, and facilitates study abroad applications, as well as the Be a Foreign Friend (BFF) program.
