The Learning Traveler, Vol. 1. U.S. College-Sponsored Programs Abroad: Academic Year.
Cohen, Gail A., Ed.; D'Angelo, Diane, Ed.
A guide to help students select possible study-abroad programs is presented. The programs are all sponsored by recognized U.S. colleges and universities during the academic year and all offer regular U.S. academic credit. Most of the programs fall into one of three basic categories: (1) the program combining study in a foreign institution with courses arranged for the group; (2) the program fully integrated into a foreign university or other university-level institution; and (3) courses taught by faculty of the sponsoring U.S. institution. All programs are listed alphabetically by region, country, and city. Entries include the name and address of the sponsoring school and brief information on the following points: year program was established, location, dates and duration, presession orientation, enrollment restrictions, fields of study, academic level, credits, prerequisites, instruction, teaching methods, language of instruction, housing, travel, costs, scholarships, work abroad, postsession program evaluation, and application deadlines. Consortia with large numbers of participating schools are listed separately with their members institutions. Indices of all sponsoring institutions and fields of study are included. A list of publications on higher education abroad is appended. (SW)
