  • Island Programs provide students the opportunity to study abroad at centers that replicate the American university experience and are specifically designed to cater to the needs of American study abroad students. Students enrolled in these programs will live and study with other study abroad students. Teaching and assessment are comparable to those at American universities. Unless otherwise noted, instruction is in English but a language class may be required in locations whose host language is not English.

    Some island programs partner with local universities, allowing study abroad students to enroll in certain local university classes with local students. Participants are exposed to teaching and assessment methods that may differ from those at American universities. Unless otherwise noted, these classes are taught in the language of the host country. These unique programs are called “Hybrid” in our catalog.

  • Special Focus Programs integrate a central academic subject, thematic topic, experiential learning, service opportunity, or internship that permeates the student experience. These programs provide students who are interested in a special focus the opportunity to be immersed in that topic for their term abroad. These programs may offer extensive field-based work, independent research, service learning, or professional internships.
