There is also a section for "worldwide" programs that are active in more than one region. Each listing programs information non program sponsorship with contact and enrollment information. Programs are indexed by sponsoring institution, consortia, fields of study, special options, and cost ranges. A sample listing explains each section of the listing. (SLD)
