Are you ready for an unforgettable summer - a summer in which you will make friends for a lifetime and experience all the warmth and generosity of the charming town of Oxford? Then International Summer Sessions at the University of Mississippi are for you. We have courses ranging from creative writing to engineering to language to art. And throughout it all, we offer a cultural program that will teach you about life in the South through food, music, art, and hospitality. In this catalog you’re sure to find a program that fulfills one of your academic requirements, piques your creative interest, or allows you to connect with students from around the world who share common goals. And when you’ve decided which program fits your needs best, we’ll be here to guide you from application, to admission, to our campus.

Welcome

Welcome to Ole Miss

Reasons to Visit Oxford

Reasons to Visit Oxford Because there are so many places you can study in the United States, we know students often compare different United States summer programs. And while we know the academic portion of your program is the top priority in your program selection, spending the summer in the United States is about more than earning credit. Here are some reasons we think Oxford, Mississippi, and the University of Mississippi might be a perfect fit for you. • You can’t beat our door-to-door hospitality, including airport pick up in Memphis, orientation and introduction to the UM campus, and activities planned throughout your program to share Southern food, art, music, and literature. • The University of Mississippi is the leader at producing leaders at state and national levels. Since 1900, Ole Miss has produced 48 Mississippi governors, 47 Mississippi Supreme Court justices, 31 U.S. representatives, and 17 U.S. senators. • Large trees, lush green lawns, pretty blooms, and bubbling fountains make up our lovely campus which has received national recognition as one of the most beautiful campuses in the United States. Although the main campus comprises 640 acres, the layout of the academic buildings is compact, so you’ll have plenty of time to get from one building to the next between classes. • Combining the wonderful charm and safety of a small Southern town with the multiculturalism and energy of a larger city, Oxford has been called “a cultural mecca in America.” It has also been included in The Best 100 Small Towns in America and is featured in the book Most Beautiful Cities in the South.

www.outreach.olemiss.edu/international

• But it’s not all about small towns. Oxford is approximately 75 miles from Memphis, Tennessee, and 170 miles from Jackson, Mississippi, the state capital. The University is easily accessible from Interstate 55 and is less than a six-hour drive from such major American cities as Atlanta, Georgia; New Orleans, Louisiana; and Nashville, Tennessee.

• Oxford is known as a music hub, from honky-tonk to opera. Whether you favor blues, jazz, country, bluegrass, gospel, Southern rock, chamber, classical, or anything in between, you can find it at the Gertrude C. Ford Performing Arts Center Photo above: Square Books is the most famous corner-store in Oxford and one of a handful of independently owned bookstores in the United States.

International Summer Sessions

International Summer School Earn credit through our strong academics while learning about the South, what it’s like, what we do, and why we do it. Through International Summer School students from around the world will have the opportunity to register in courses with University of Mississippi students at the Oxford, Mississippi, campus. The courses will be taught by UM faculty and students can elect to take courses from any department or school. Students can earn up to 6 hours of course work per session that is transferable back to their home institutions. A complete list of courses follows on pages 9-18. Each course meets for two hours a day Monday through Friday. Outside of class, international and domestic students can participate in seminars related to the South, as well as a cultural program of short trips outside Oxford and around the South. Students will also be given the opportunity to participate in community-service programs in and around Oxford. And when you’re not participating in a scheduled event, summer in Oxford offers plenty of ways to get out and get involved during the day and as part of Oxford’s nightlife on the Square.

Gorgeous place with a rich history! Buildings are well maintained and I found America very inexpensive in comparison to Australia. Definitely lived up to the Southern hospitality as EVERYONE was very inviting and accommodating, making the stay even more enjoyable. You feel very welcomed and not a stranger in a foreign place. Everyone is very interested to hear about your life. ––– Australian Summer School Student

Summer Institutes

Summer Institutes (continued) Meek School of Journalism and New Media Summer Fellows Institute Our inaugural session of the Meek School of Journalism and New Media Summer Fellows Institute will bring together international and domestic students to discuss media and journalism. This program is open to undergraduate and graduate-level students and is composed of two 3-hour courses:

• JOUR 500 — Journalism Innovation: A capstone class in which students trace, track, understand, and participate in a new media landscape, especially those changes related to the Web and other forms of digital media. • JOUR 575 — Mass Media Ethics and Social Issues: Formulation and discussion of professional ethics for journalists. Analysis of social forces affecting media performance.

Becoming Faulkner: Pedagogy, Popular Culture, and Faulkner’s Aesthetics In conjunction with the annual Faulkner and Yoknapatawpha Conference, UM is offering a graduate-level seminar to domestic and international students reflecting on Oxford-native and Nobel Laureate William Faulkner’s works 50 years after his death.

www.outreach.olemiss.edu/international

In addition to participation in all conference-related activities, students will participate in one 3-hour course:

20

• ENGL 566 — Faulkner Studies: This course is intended for graduate students seeking to deepen their critical, pedagogical, and personal engagement with Faulkner’s writings. Participants will arrive on campus having read one book and five novels. The class will hold three days of discussion prior to the Conference and then participate in all Conference activities. After the Conference, participants will meet for additional days to work on research for a final paper and a teaching unit, which will be due prior to departure. In addition, participants will write 500word journal prompts on each text and daily blog postings on the conference sessions.

"Clocks slay time... time is dead as long as it is being clicked off by little wheels; only when the clock stops does time come to life." - William Faulkner


Besides our wide variety of on-campus programs, the University of Mississippi also offers international students the opportunity to earn UM credit while studying in other parts of the United States. These programs are designed to give students the opportunity to benefit from the excellent academics of the University of Mississippi while experiencing life outside the South.

Housing Details Generally, on-campus accommodations are traditional dormitories with two students to each room and shared bathroom facilities in each wing. Single rooms are available on a limited basis, though no private bathroom facilities are available. Approximately 40 students share bathroom facilities and each wing of the dormitory (and in most cases, each dormitory) are single gender. Access to dorms is granted by using the student ID card to enter the main doors — which are always locked — and using a traditional key to enter the student’s room. Guests must sign in at the front desk and visiting hours are restricted on weeknights and weekends. Photo right: University students move outdoors for class to enjoy the beautiful weather.

Oxford has been a fun ride. I have enjoyed all the people I’ve met. It’s a unique space on earth. Here you have the special opportunity to meet people from all over the world but still live in a small town and develop a sense of community. It goes by quickly, though.People are moving all the time. They’re growing, changing, and graduating academically, emotionally, spiritually and more. Going to school here has left a good mark on me. I appreciate all my experiences.

Partner Benefits

Partner Benefits

General Program Information

If your institution is a partner of the University of Mississippi, certain benefits apply to you related to International Summer Sessions.

Financial Aid Students who do not attend a partner institution and wish to enroll directly in International Summer Sessions can also apply for aid to help defer some of the program costs. Financial aid availability varies by program and depends heavily on the student’s ability to show financial need and academic merit. For more information on how to apply for financial aid, please visit http://www.outreach.olemiss.edu/ international.

Placement as Part of an Exchange Relationship Some agreements between UM and partner institutions allow university students to enroll in the International Summer Sessions as part of our exchange protocol. In that case, students would pay fees at their home institution and receive program benefits at UM without having to pay some costs. Please check with your home institution advisor to see if your university has an agreement with UM that allows for summer programs to count toward the exchange balance. In order to receive this benefit, students must forward their application to the University of Mississippi through their home institution. Tuition Discount Tuition waivers for non-resident fees are available if your university has an active exchange with UM and you direct enroll into the program. Please check with your local Study Abroad Office to determine whether you attend a UM partner institution. The tuition waiver will be credited to your account once you arrive at UM and begin classes. Language Study There are some institutions that also have Memorandums of Understanding with IEP at UM. Those institutions have set prices for students attending UM programs with the intention of returning to the home institution. Please see your intensive English advisor at your home institution regarding pricing and details. In order to receive tuition discounts, students must forward their application to the University of Mississippi through their home institution.

Coverage in this insurance plan provides emergency services as well as general health coverage at the Student Health Center on the UM campus. The cost of this insurance plan will be charged to students when they arrive on campus. Additional Documentation In most cases, international students will need to submit supporting documentation in order to complete the application process and receive the proper paperwork to secure a student visa. Because this documentation varies by student and by program we send a follow-up e-mail to each student stating the required documentation and the timeline for submission. Failure to return these documents may result in students being removed from their desired program without a refund of any fees already paid. Until a letter of final acceptance, along with visa documentation, has been received, a student’s status is considered “pending.” Please pay attention to directions in all follow up e-mails and mailed packets and complete the requested documentation as soon as possible to secure your admission.
