Students are able to study Chinese or English at various institutions throughout the world. The focus of study is on advancing language skills, increasing awareness of intercultural communication, and the importance of becoming international citizens. Pre and post orientation and training sessions are a crucial part of the program. Students are encouraged to prepare adequately, required to attend pre-departure orientation, and are expected to conduct pre-departure research culminating in a presentation on some aspect of the culture to which they will be traveling. On return, the reflection and feedback session is equally important. Students evaluate their experience and reflect on how it has changed them and their perspectives on the world. Students taking part in this program are also eligible to receive two credits.
