Since 1964, UMAIE has offered unique opportunities for cross-cultural study during January Term and starting in 2005, May/June Term. UMAIE, a consortium of colleges and universities, cooperates to provide the educational depth and resources necessary for an intercultural curriculum. This year UMAIE offers courses in many locations around the world including: The Americas (North and South), Africa, Asia and the Pacific Rim and Europe (Western, Central, Eastern and Southern).

The comprehensive fee includes round-trip air transportation from Minneapolis-St. Paul to the course location; airport transfers; visas (where required for U.S. citizens who meet the visa application deadline and have the correct accompanying documentation); transportation to most course activities while abroad; lodging, primarily in twin or triple rooms in hotels (or where indicated – pensions, university dormitories, or family homes); continental breakfast daily (exceptions noted on individual course descriptions) and other meals as indicated; tickets for required theatrical and cultural performances; planned excursions; and administrative costs (however, individual institutions may assess additional charges). All rail passes, entrances and local airfares are based on utilization of youth rates (25 years or under) where possible and any participants who do not qualify for such discounts are responsible for all supplemental costs.

The UMAIE Mission Statement

“To provide high-quality short-term global education experiences in diverse locales and to encourage the development of intercultural values and understanding through intercollegiate cooperation and coordination of programming resources and expertise.”
