Vacation Study Abroad. The Learning Traveler, Vol. 2.
Cohen, Gail A., Ed.; Chasan, Gail A., Ed.
A guide to vacation study-abroad opportunities is presented. About half the programs are sponsored by U.S. colleges and universities, the rest by foreign institutions and private and governmental groups. The courses, which range from a few days to 3 months in length, are appropriate for various postsecondary and professional levels, and a few programs (primarily sponsored by foreign institutions) also admit pre-college students. Entries include the name and address of the sponsoring school and brief information on the following points: year the program was established; program location; dates and/or duration of the program; pre-session orientation locales and procedures; enrollment restrictions; fields of study; academic level; credits awarded; prerequisites; teaching methods; language of instruction; housing; costs; scholarships; work/study opportunities; and program evaluation. Appendices include: a list of U.S. consortia that sponsor programs; a 10-page annotated bibliography of publications on higher education abroad listed by region and country; a list of foreign currency and the exchange-rate equivalency in U.S. dollars; and indexes of sponsoring institutions and fields of study.
