Study Abroad

Summer Study Abroad

CM students may choose to participate in any of Georgia Tech’s summer study abroad programs, but the most popular destination is Barcelona, Spain, where students can take CS courses in a city known for architectural design.

CM students have traditionally participated in the Barcelona Summer Study Abroad program, to complete requirements for the CS side of the degree. This 10-week program offers CS courses as well as classes in Architecture and Spanish.

Semester-long Programs

Georgia Tech undergraduate students have a wide array of options for staying abroad for the Spring and/or Fall semesters. You can view a comprehensive list of the programs Georgia Tech offers on the Office of International Education website.

One example of a semester long program pertinent to CM majors is our ITU Copenhagen Exchange Program. This program exposes students to a variety of classes in digital media and design, in a semester long stay. All courses are taught in English and may satisfy the requirements of the LMC thread as well as the required capstone.

International Plan

CM majors may choose to participate in the International Plan. To earn the IP designation on their diploma, students must complete 9 hours of internationally-themed coursework, show language proficiency through the 2002 level, and study or work abroad for a total of 26 weeks. This elite program prepares students to be more effective global citizens, making them ideal candidates for competitive positions in today’s global economy.
