Florida State University’s International Programs offer an ideal combination of traditional and contemporary education—in Old World countries of Europe, in nations both ancient and emerging such as China and Russia, and in Central and South America’s rich and vibrant cultures. Students participating in these programs live and study in the midst of incomparable academic resources: art works, architecture, and museums and libraries, as well as institutions of government, commerce, and learning. They enjoy small classes and extraordinary research opportunities, and they return well prepared for careers or for graduate school.
The Honors Office, International Program, and International Exchange Program work together to make sure that University Honors and Honors in the Major students can avail of these unique opportunities. Please note the following:
- Courses offered in any of FSU’s international locations may be augmented for Honors credit (for more information, contact Peggy Allen).
- University Honors and Honors in the Major students have the chance to compete for Bess Ward Honors-only scholarships.
