Global opportunities that are uniquely IU

Aside from major and study abroad options, IU offers plenty of other ways to prepare for a global career—or just expand your horizons.

  • IU has three Language Flagship programs—Arabic, Chinese, and Russian—more than any school in the U.S. Funded through the Department of Defense, the programs prepare global professionals with superior proficiency in languages critical to U.S. competitiveness and security.
  • Speaking of languages, IU also offers instruction in more languages than any other public university: more than 80 at last count.
  • The Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies offers a certificate in Global Service and Peace Corps Prep.
  • The HLS Living Learning Center is a great option if you want to connect and live with a diverse group of students from the U.S. and around the world.
