Study Abroad

K-State philosophy majors and minors have a number of study abroad options.


The K-State Philosophy Department has strong ties with the Philosophy Department at Bogazici University in Istanbul, Turkey, and several K-State philosophy majors and minors have spent a semester there.


Professor Mahoney has recently helped K-State establish a formal exchange agreement with International University of Central Asia in Tokmok, Kyrgyzstan. IUCA is a new English language university that should be appealing to students looking for an adventure and for study in areas such as International Relations, Far Eastern Studies, and Central Asian Languages--including Kyrgyz, Uzbek, Tajik, Dungan as well as Russian.

While traveling in Kyrgyzstan there are many opportunities for hiking excursions. For example, check out the Kyrgyzstan Trekking Union at www.tuk.kg. There are also home-stays available to students. For example, Community Based Tourism at CBT. Contact Professor Mahoney for further details.


Kansas State University has exchange partnerships with the University of Sydney, the University of Western Australia, the University of Queensland, the University of New South Wales, the University of Canberra, and Deakin University. If you're interested in studying philosophy at one of those universities, contact Bruce Glymour for advising.

For other programs visit K-State's Office for International Programs. For some programs scholarships and financial aid are available.
