Click here for a Program Description:

This engaging and interactive summer study abroad program combines classroom instruction with high profile guest lectures, visits and excursions, as well as practical training elements in the area of goal finding, human rights, mediation, dispute resolution, social responsibility/peace building, and intercultural negotiation skills to prepare students for their future careers goals to become leaders in a globalized world. Students are meant to be co-creators of this summer program, not consumers.

The instructors and guest speakers who will lead the program are the facilitators of student growth, not the providers of it.

Throughout the program, students will be motivated to step up and lead, question, engage, grow, commit, create community, and continue to develop as the unfolding leaders they would like to become. Attending class, being prepared and completing readings and assignments, and actively participating in class discussions and activities are not only expected, but essential for every student’s individual success and growth through participation in this program.

COURSES INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAM

Intercultural Communication  - AEC 3073  (3 credits)

This course provides students with the key concepts and theories surrounding intercultural communication. In our interdependent world, students of all majors
need the intercultural communication knowledge, skills, and sensitivities to be able to function as citizens and employees.

Global Leadership - AEC 4465  (3 credits)

This class explores where students plan to go in the future as global-citizenleaders in order to understand how to effectively intervene in systems in culturally
appropriate and sustainable ways. Through readings, research, dialogue, and technology that connects us to the world, we will explore what it means to be a
global-citizen-leader in a complex and ever-adaptive world.

Course instructors are from the USA as well as European universities.
