The University of Nebraska is proud to announce a new LL.M. (or legal masters degree) program in United States Legal Studies. The LL.M. program is designed for students holding degrees in law from universities outside the United States. Graduates are trained to meet the demands of legal practice in our globalized world by attending their courses side-by-side with J.D. students. Our goal is to engage international attorneys in U.S. legal studies and to provide a wider worldview for our J.D. students. We need your help spreading the word about this new opportunity. You may also request brochures be sent to them by contacting Elsbeth Magilton, Executive Director of Graduate Programming at firstname.lastname@example.org.

"We want to show Aberdeen all the different cultures we have here," said Shlomit Oren, who is of Israeli and Columbian descent.

The Gilbert Week: NYC Seminar for Music Professions is a one-week field trip that allows sophomore music majors to meet with arts professionals and visit performing arts institutions, as well as learn about a wide variety of career opportunities in music. Music programs have thrived at Syracuse University since 1877, when SU became one of the first universities in the United States to grant music degrees requiring four years’ study in both music and theory. Today, the Setnor School of Music continues this tradition of innovation by offering undergraduate and graduate degree programs that prepare students for 21st-century music careers. Setnor students pursue degrees in composition, conducting, performance, music education, and the music and entertainment industries. Off-campus opportunities include performances and field experiences in Central New York; internships in London, Los Angeles, and New York City; and a semester abroad in Strasbourg, France.
Recently, the Institutes of International Education (IIE) released its 2013 Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange. The report, which is published annually by IIE in partnership with the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, identifies important trends in international educational exchanges.
Findings of the Open Doors report were the subject of a briefing in Washington, D.C. on November 12, led by Assistant Secretary of State Evan M. Ryan and IIE President and CEO Allan E. Goodman. Two major findings were the increases in international students coming to the U.S. -- up 7 percent to a record high of 819,644 -- and American students studying abroad -- up 3 percent to a total of 283,332. Open Doors also reports on the number of international scholars at U.S. universities; international students enrolled in pre-academic Intensive English Programs; and on U.S. students studying abroad. During the event, leaders from the international education community discussed other key trends, how economic factors and education policies affect student mobility and also the many ways in which academic exchanges strengthen diplomatic and business relationships throughout the world.
