The mission of the Office of International Education is to encourage Oakland University students and faculty to study, conduct research, and teach in international settings, and to facilitate and encourage the presence of foreign students and faculty on our campus. The Office seeks to increase and intensify the University’s involvement in global education through agreements with universities and other appropriate institutions around the world. It also serves as a resource center for the Oakland academic community by providing information on international study and research opportunities for faculty and students. Through such endeavors, the Office affirms the importance of a global outlook as an essential part of the university’s overall mission.

Course Offerings

The following courses are designated as international education courses and may be taken to earn credit for study abroad. Those courses marked by an asterisk (*) directly generate credit from study abroad programs with which Oakland is associated. All others are independent study, or internship courses in which students may receive school or departmental credit for projects undertaken while traveling, working or studying abroad. In addition, all courses under the 399, Field Experience, rubric may be used for the same purpose. These projects must be individually arranged with and supervised by an instructor, whose permission is required to take the course in which the project will be done. The graduate level courses that appear below are open to undergraduate students with instructor permission.
