International Organizations in Switzerland


There has never been a better time to study abroad in Cuba.

Cuba’s unique political and cultural history has long made it the subject of rich intellectual discussion and debate. Economic, political, and social reforms have signaled a time of transition since the 1990s. And this year’s diplomatic opening between the US and Cuba promises to profoundly impact the island’s future.



Psychology in Morocco


This is an amazing opportunity for students to combine cross-cultural psychology with international travel! Experiencing Moroccan culture is highlighted, as this experiential learning course focuses on on the installation of cultural values, with an emphasis on how stigma and stereotypes disrupt/reinforce health and well-being.



Qatar and the United Arab Emirates


This brand new 3-credit course will focus on the strategic global policies of oil and natural gas and its political, economic and social impact on the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries specifically the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.


Great Cities of East Central Europe

This course will be an investigation of the history of nations, nationalism, and the great cities of East Central Europe - Prague, Vienna, and Budapest. Because the course is designed around a study tour, students will be examining the events in history where they happened.


Ancient History and Archaeology of Peru

The ancient cultures of Peru have long fascinated archaeologists and tourists alike. The 1911 rediscovery of the Inca city of Machu Picchu ignited archaeological imagination about Peru, and this fascination continues today. While Machu Picchu is the best-known Inca settlement, it is but one of tens of thousands of ancient sites still visible on the Peruvian landscape.


Community Building in South Africa

Students will go on an academic and experiential journey through the tropical province of KwaZulu-Natal. Students will live with Zulu families in urban townships and rural villages, observe infrastructure projects, cultural performances, and traditional rituals.
