With an emphasis on hands-on learning experiences, you have opportunities to simulate real-life scenarios, make connections, and build your resume.
Europe as Your Classroom
Take your classroom on the road with two course-integrated, faculty-led Study Tours with your Core Course! Visit important sites and meet with local experts who add cultural perspectives to your knowledge of the field.
Faculty Who Teach What They Do
Most faculty work as professionals in the areas they teach, bringing theory to life by sharing real-world examples in the classroom.
Academic counseling and personal support resources are available to you during your time abroad, providing you a solid foundation upon which to grow.
In your courses, you focus on the importance of cultural context and are exposed to how issues are perceived, lived, and theorized in Europe. It is also your chance to reflect on the cultural norms and values that shape you.
Meet the Locals
Living in a Homestay, signing up for a sports team, taking a Swedish Language and Culture course, or attending evening seminar are among the ways to build your international network and meet the locals.
