CIEE's Expanded STEM Portfolio

In response to the growing demand for English-based STEM courses abroad, I’m pleased to announce CIEE’s expanded STEM portfolio of over 70 international program options, including:

  • 40 Direct Enroll STEM Programs – CIEE partners with top-tier colleges and universities around the globe where students from all majors can take STEM courses alongside local students. Students in these immersive programs can choose from thousands of STEM courses offered in English or in the language of the host country.
  • 18 CIEE STEM Intensive Programs – These short-term or semester-long programs designed specifically for STEM students feature research opportunities, field studies, or internships at leading companies and NGOs. The location is the laboratory for these experiential learning programs that CIEE offers in nine countries, including Australia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Thailand, and more.
  • 23 New English-based STEM and Psychology 6-Week Block Courses – Our 6-week Open Campus Block Programs offer STEM students unparalleled flexibility to fulfill academic requirements while gaining a global perspective by studying at one or more of the 14 locations in our Global Institute Network. In fall 2019, various locations in our Global Institute Network will offer new English-taught, 6-week courses — some with a 4-credit lab component — in science, technology, engineering, math, and psychology, including:


  • Introductory Biology 1 (LAB)
  • Introductory Biology 2 (LAB)
  • Conservation Biology
  • General Chemistry 1 (LAB)
  • General Chemistry 2 (LAB)
  • General Physics 1 (LAB)
  • General Physics 2 (LAB)
  • Global Change and the Environment
  • Sustainable Development in the 21st Century


  • Computer Science 1: Introductory Programming
  • Computer Science 2: Data Structures
  • Fundamentals of Computer Game Design
  • Web Development and Design


  • Introduction to Engineering

Thank you to the many CIEE Academic Consortium schools who helped us develop these programs to ensure they’re aligned with the U.S. STEM curriculum and meet CIEE’s rigorous academic standards — especially our friends at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, CU Boulder, Tulane, Penn State, and Howard.
