An adventurous, immersive academic program for Ole Miss students, led by Ole Miss faculty

What is Study USA?

The Ole Miss Study USA program is an academic travel program offering intensive short-term courses across locations in the United States. Each intersession, we offer a range of academic classes in different cities. You’ll gain real-world insight while learning in a unique setting alongside other Ole Miss students and faculty.

View Courses

Between Semesters

Courses primarily take place during intersessions, typically lasting between 5 days to 2 weeks. Earn academic course credit as you immerse yourself in one unique course.

Real World

Directly apply learning to your location. Every class takes full advantage of its surroundings. You’ll get in the field, visit museums and historical sites, tour industry settings, and meet industry professionals.

Hands On

Courses are designed to connect academics with in-field experiences. You’ll have engaging class discussions and have opportunities to apply learning to the field. 


All courses are led by Ole Miss faculty and most meet on the Oxford campus before travel–so you can learn with confidence in a supportive academic environment.

Past Study USA Students

I don't think any course could top my Study USA POL 391 course. The agenda was top-notch and gave me a life-changing experience.
