Academic Year Abroad, 1998/99. The Most Complete Guide to Planning Academic Year Study Abroad.
Steen, Sara J., Ed.
This guide provides descriptions of 2,491 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). Introductory sections provide information on the Institute of International Education (IIE), IIE publications, the use of the guide, planning study abroad, and 78 publications and 34 websites on study and research abroad and funding opportunities. The majority of the guide consists of individual program descriptions, arranged geographically by region and country. In addition to specific country and city listing, there is a "worldwide" section for programs that are active in more than one world region. Each listing provides information on program sponsor, name of the program, program site, dates, subjects of study and opportunities to learn foreign languages, eligibility, credit, instructional methods and language(s) of instruction, costs, housing, deadline, other information, and contact point. Programs are indexed by program sponsor, consortia, field of study, special options, cost, and duration. A brief article, "How to Read Study-Abroad Literature," by Lily von Klemperer is included, along with statistics on study abroad. (SW)
