Extend Learning,
Build Upon the Legacy

In coordination with commemoration of the 60th anniversary of integration at the University of Mississippi, Study USA is sponsoring a number of academic travel courses created to help students understand the impact of that event in geographic areas far outside the bounds of our campus.

Study USA classes are short-term academic courses that combine domestic travel with the leadership of University of Mississippi faculty. These specialized courses represent a number of academic fields and connect with the themes of the anniversary – knowledge, courage, opportunity, and perseverance.
