The Shackouls Honors College strongly encourages Mississippi State students to develop a global perspective through foreign language study and study abroad. Beyond the exposure to other peoples and other cultures, the Shackouls Honors College also seeks to connect our students to international universities and agencies of the highest caliber. Our unique Shackouls Summer Study at the University of Oxford places honors students in the top Oxford colleges and gives them the true Oxford experience by having them taught by Oxford faculty. Our students are eligible to compete for Honors-only scholarships to support their study abroad.

New Study Abroad Opportunity at the University of Glasgow in Scotland!

Shackouls Honors College students have an exciting new study abroad opportunity with the University of Glasgow, Scotland. This university, founded in 1451, is among the top 100 world universities with a large variety of classes and programs available. Opportunities exist for both semester and full academic year study.

Students interested are encouraged to look at the university website.

Of especial interest is the Principia Program, in which we are now a partner.

The Associate Dean for Academic Affairs of the Shackouls Honors College and the Office of Study Abroad will work with students before they select their classes to connect with colleges and departments to ensure the courses will transfer back to Mississippi State University in order to confirm that there is no delay in a student’s program of study.

A quick look at the University of Glasgow Schools will show that there are a full variety of schools and colleges available at the University of Glasgow. Pre-Med students may be interested in the Functional Anatomy course which admits students on a competitive basis and not all students are accepted. Students in the sciences and engineering will find a wide variety of classes to satisfy their requirements as well as students in Arts, Humanities, Business, Education and Social Sciences.
