The School of International Letters and Cultures' study abroad programs are among the longest-running and most prestigious at Arizona State University. Founded in 1981 and directed by knowledgeable world-class faculty, the programs offer students the opportunity to experience and study international humanities and learn languages first-hand while earning credit toward their degrees.

The school's study abroad programs are open to students of any major and to non-degree seeking members of the community.

Due to the popularity of the programs, the school has extended application deadlines for some programs to allow students to complete their applications and apply for scholarships and financial aid by March 15.
