Academic Year Abroad 1997/98: The Most Complete Guide to Planning Academic Year Study Abroad.
Steen, Sara J., Ed.
This guide provides descriptions of 2,438 study-abroad programs that take place during the academic year (usually September through June), and that are at least one academic quarter in length (usually 8 to 10 weeks). An introductory section provides information on the Institute of International Education (IIE), IIE publications, the use of the guide, planning study abroad, additional resources, and how to read study-abroad literature. The bulk of the guide consists of individual program descriptions, arranged geographically by region and country. Each listing provides information on program sponsor and name, site, dates, subjects offered, eligibility requirements, academic credit offered, costs, housing, application deadline, other information, and contact point. Approximately 75 percent of the programs listed are sponsored by U.S. accredited colleges and universities. An appendix contains statistics on study abroad. Programs are indexed by sponsoring institution, consortia, fields of study, special options, and cost ranges. (MDM)
