All undergraduate international and area studies degree programs are open enrollment.
To receive a BYU bachelor's degree a student must complete, in addition to all requirements for a specific major, the following university requirements:
Students should see the International and Area Studies Advisement Center for help or information concerning the undergraduate programs.
International Study Programs (ISP) are open to students from all university majors. Students need not be formally admitted to BYU to participate in International Study and BYU credit may be transferred to their home institution.
Study Abroad: BYU's traditional off-campus study programs. In these programs students are able to further their general education; pursue specialized courses in languages, the social sciences, humanities, fine arts, and other fields; gain valuable insights into their own country; and further international understanding.
Direct Enrollment: Students are integrated into an international university, taught by faculty native to that county, and are not accompanied by BYU faculty.
International Internships: Short-term, on-the-job apprentice training abroad under the direction of a firm, government agency, NGO, or other such institution.
Field Studies: A research experience abroad for small numbers of students directed by faculty, who generally do not accompany the students.
