Vacation Study Abroad. 1990. The Most Complete Guide to Planning Summer Study Abroad.
Howard, E. Marguerite, Ed.
The book presents concise descriptions of over 1,300 summer study programs and short courses (geared to all levels of postsecondary education) worldwide sponsored by U.S. colleges and universities, foreign universities and language schools, and nonprofit and proprietary educational organizations. Programs are arranged first by the geographical region of the world (Africa South of the Sahara, Asia and Oceania, Europe, the Middle East and North Africa, and the Western Hemisphere). Each region is subdivided alphabetically first by country and then by city, province, area, or island. Within each city subsection, the arrangement is alphabetical by the names of the sponsoring institutions. There is a "Worldwide" chapter for programs that operate in more than one region of the world, and similarly, there are "More Then One Country" and "More Than One City" listings. Information is provided on program sponsor and name, location, dates, subjects, credit, eligibility, instruction, highlights, costs, housing, deadline, and contact for information and applications. An appendix lists consortia. The book is indexed by sponsoring institutions and by fields of study. (SM)
