World Learning/ School for International Training (SIT) is a leader in immersive, field-based study abroad programs for undergraduates. We offer more than 70 programs in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East, as well as comparative programs in multiple locations. In addition to our rich history, our programs’ unique qualities – including exceptional locations, independent research, cultural immersion, and deep local networks — make our programs an ideal choice for an extraordinary, transformative study abroad experience.
SIT prepares students to be interculturally effective leaders, professionals, and citizens. In so doing, SIT fosters a worldwide network of individuals and organizations committed to responsible global citizenship. SIT fulfills this mission with field-based academic study abroad programs for undergraduates and accredited master’s degrees and certificate programs for graduates and professionals. SIT dates back to 1932 with the founding of The Experiment in International Living, an immersive summer program aimed at improving cross-cultural understanding and leadership skills by sending US students to study and live with families abroad. Today, SIT offers globally focused graduate-level programs through SIT Graduate Institute and more than 70 field-based undergraduate programs on seven continents through SIT Study Abroad.
