WHAT? International seminars allowing you to study information science or library science in a global context: 2 weeks of organized tours and activities led by SILS faculty and faculty at our partner iSchools abroad. The course is worth 3 hours of UNC credit. With approval from your home institution, you can transfer the course and count it toward your degree. (More information and sample syllabi on each program page below.)

WHY? Deepen your knowledge of the information professions, earn 3 hours of credit toward your degree, and spend your summer seeing part of the world!
All seminars offer a unique, behind-the-scenes, hands-on experience. Participants generally have evenings and weekends free to explore on their own.
Our seminars are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, and they tend to fill quickly. Early registration is encouraged.
