Academic Year Abroad, 1994/95. The Most Complete Guide to Planning Academic Year Study Abroad.
Steen, Sara J., Ed.
This book describes over 2,100 academic programs (at least one academic quarter in length) sponsored by accredited U.S. postsecondary institutions or developed for U.S. students by foreign universities and other organizations. Entries are based on a 1993 survey. While most programs listed are available to undergraduates, many programs are also open to precollege students, graduate students, teachers, professionals, and other adults. Learning options presented range from lecture courses and intensive language immersion to internships, student teaching, field research, and voluntary service. Program entries are organized first by geographical region: Africa, South of the Sahara; Asia and Oceania; Eastern Europe; Western Europe; the Middle East and North Africa; and the Western Hemisphere. Each world region is subdivided alphabetically by country and then by city. Within each city section, program entries are alphabetized by name of sponsoring organization. In addition to specific country and city listings, there is a "Worldwide" section for programs that are active in more than one world region. Similarly, there are "More Than One Country" listings at the beginning of each regional section, and "More Than One City" listings at the front of each country. Data provided include (1) costs and fees; (2) academic credit; (3) eligibility and academic level; (4) dates and duration; (5) language/s of instruction; (6) housing; and (7) contact addresses, phone, and fax numbers.
