Instructor Led Study Abroad

Looking for an educational experience that reaches beyond our borders? We are proud to design and offer instructor led study abroad (ILSA) courses at CUE. These international experiences allow students to study abroad as part of their enrollment in a particular course. Students travel together, with their instructor, to a destination abroad and learn the course material from that location. As part of the experience, students and instructors often participate in field work and other kinds of experiential learning.

A course may have a short-term ILSA component or students may be abroad for the entirety of their course (travel tends to take place during scheduled breaks so participation in other courses is not impacted).
