By James Brownstein/The Associated PressThe University of Michigan-Flint is a popular destination for international students.
It has more than 700 international students and over 1,200 foreign faculty members, who spend more than 50 percent of their time at the school, according to the school’s website.
The university is in the middle of a five-year, $8.8 billion plan to open a new center to teach courses in the sciences, humanities and social sciences in a campus building that has a capacity of nearly 3,500 students.
The school recently announced a partnership with Pepperdina University, a leading research university in Latin America, to open the Pepperdini Center, a two-year degree program in the fields of human sciences, history, social sciences and philosophy.
The center will be a center of excellence in the areas of comparative studies, cognitive science, psychology and public policy, the school said.
The partnership will also provide more opportunities for Pepperdines students to travel and work in other countries, said David Dolan, associate dean for student affairs and dean of the PepperDine University.
The new program is the largest of its kind for PepperDines, with about 200 international students in its program and 600 Pepperdin students.
Students can also choose to study overseas at PepperDini, a partnership of Pepperdino and Pepperdinus, which will allow them to study and work abroad in partnership with the university, said Sarah Wysocki, vice president for student engagement and external relations.
Students who have a master’s degree or a bachelor’s degree in any of the humanities or social sciences can choose to participate in the Pepper dini program.
The program is designed to help them gain a broad understanding of the world around them, Wysocksi said.
Pepperdini is an independent program and the Pepper Dini program is funded by the university’s general fund, which has a budget of $2.8 million, she said.
Students can apply online for the program, which runs through July.
Pepperdinas students are welcome to apply to the program if they have a high school diploma, Wyssoski said.
Students from more than a dozen countries were accepted into the Pepperi program, including Australia, China, India, Japan, South Africa, Thailand, the U.K., the U
