IEP academic programs offer experiences for a wide variety of majors and include direct-enrollment programs at large prestigious universities abroad.
Why Study Abroad?
Earn Academic Credit
Students can earn credit that will count towards their degree. When evaluating what country to study abroad in, course options may be a consideration. The credits may transfer back as pass/fail, electives, upper division credits within any given major, or core curriculum/general education hours.
Language is a powerful tool that shapes the way that we view the world. The ability to speak more than one language is a highly valuable skill for a student’s professional and personal life. Organizations worldwide give preference to qualified applicants who are are skilled in a foreign language. Equally important, foreign language acquisition enriches a person's understanding of his or her own native language. Many recent graduates also find our language programs are an excellent way to broaden their perspectives and skill sets prior to entering the working world.
Studying abroad is an incredible way to gain real world experience in a particular academic field or future profession. For example, international business majors can learn more about global markets simply by shopping in downtown London or Bangkok. Marine biology majors can observe marine life in Australia or in the Galapagos Islands that cannot even be found anywhere in the United States! Or Spanish majors and minors can earn Spanish language credits while practicing conversation with their host family or roommates in Hispanic America or Spain. What could you learn by studying abroad?
Study abroad programs give students the out-of-classroom exposure to cultures, language, environments, people groups, ideas, and traditions that they may not otherwise have an opportunity to experience in their hometown. Ask us to put you in contact with a past participant so you have a better idea of what to expect.
Internship and Volunteer Programs
Customized internship and volunteer abroad opportunities offered by IEP allow students and recent graduates to focus their academic studies, gain relevant work experience, and immerse themselves in the workplace and society of a foreign country. Service-learning and volunteer abroad opportunities in developing countries around the globe provide students with intercultural experiences and opportunities for meaningful travel.
