JMU's Semester Abroad Programs offer JMU faculty an exciting opportunity to work in an international environment, collaborate with faculty of different nationalities and educational training, live in the host country with their families, and experience everyday life in a new culture. The FMIR’s primary responsibilities are to lead and manage the students’ academic and cultural program and to help manage the program’s finances. The FMIR also either teaches one course, conducts an approved research project, or engages in an approved service project.
Completed applications received by the deadline are reviewed by the FMIR Selection Committee. Selections will be confirmed by the close of the fall semester.
