Established in 1955, the school provides instruction on a campus in Monterey, California. The Institute offers a wide range of master's programs and certificates in various disciplines such as environmental policy, international business, international policy, language teaching, and translation and interpretation. MIIS has two graduate professional schools known as the Graduate School of Translation, Interpretation, and Language Education (GSTILE) and the Graduate School of International Policy and Management (GSIPM), and several related centers.

The Middlebury Institute was established in 1955 as the Monterey Institute for Foreign Studies (MIFS). In 1961, the school moved to its current downtown Monterey location, where it has since occupied 19 buildings that house two graduate schools, multiple centers, and numerous special programs.
