INSTEP Study Abroad Programs

Since 1989, the Murphy Institute’s affiliation with the Institute of Economic and Political Studies (INSTEP) has provided Tulane undergraduates academic semester and summer study abroad experiences that develop a contemporary European perspective on economics, business, law, and international relations. INSTEP has been offering semester and summer study abroad programs in London and Cambridge, England, since 1979.

Classes are taught in small groups of students in traditionally British seminars or supervisions for which Tulane students can receive graded, academic credit for their degree program. Students attending INSTEP choose from two centers: the academic setting of Cambridge or the cosmopolitan environment of central London. Political Economy majors attending INSTEP may also pursue a Directed Research track in London to further develop undergraduate research techniques.

For more information, please visit The Institute of Economic and Political Studies.

Students interested in INSTEP programs should meet with the Office of Study Abroad.

The Murphy Institute

Established in memory of Charles H. Murphy, Sr. (1870-1954), and inspired by the vision of Charles H. Murphy, Jr. (1920-2002), the Murphy Institute exists to help Tulane faculty and students understand economic, moral, and political problems we all face and think about. More important, it exists to help us understand how these problems have come to be so closely interconnected.
