SIT study abroad programs include an Independent Study Project which requires students to conduct original fieldwork, give a final presentation and write a formal research paper. Visit UI Study Abroad in 1111 UCC to explore other research-based, study abroad programs.

PLEASE NOTE:  Any research which involves "human subjects" must be reviewed by the University of Iowa Institutional Review Board (IRB) prior to the initiation of the research project.  Proof of the determination/ review process must also be submitted to the Global Health Studies Program before enrolling in the research project for credit. Read a summary of the IRB process on the International Programs website.  For all questions contact the IRB at 319/335-6465; or complete the IRB determination form  to find out if your research meets the definition of human subjects research.
