PIIRS welcomes students from all disciplines who share an interest in international and regional studies. In addition to its many events, which are open to undergraduates, PIIRS offers a number of certificate programs, opportunities for experiential learning abroad through its Global Seminar program, and support for international research related to the senior thesis and for international internships.
- Certificates of Proficiency enable students to supplement work in their departmental concentration with focused and multidisciplinary study in another field. The PIIRS-supported certificates focus on Africa, Europe, South Asia, and Russia and Eurasia, as well as on translation studies.
- Global Seminars provide undergraduates with an opportunity to explore the international dimensions of their academic interests through a unique program of study. Students spend six weeks in the country and city at the heart of the seminar’s subject matter led by Princeton faculty and instructors from the host university and other local institutions.
- The PIIRS Undergraduate Fellows program supports international senior thesis research across all disciplines by providing faculty guidance and funding for research abroad in the summer of the junior year.
- International internships supported by PIIRS in partnership with the International Internship Program (IIP) place students in a wide range of world regions and across diverse areas of professional and academic interests. For more information, visit the IIP website.
