You can design an epic quarter abroad with CIEE! Select the quarter that works best for you by combining our open campus program blocks or blocks with summer program sessions. You can spend the entire quarter in one location or travel to another after one block or session. No matter your academic focus, we have high-quality coursework to help you meet major requirements or electives with courses in the following tracks: 

  • Architecture and Design
  • Business
  • Communication, New Media, and Journalism
  • Global and Community Health
  • International Relations and Political Science
  • Language, Literature, and Culture
  • STEM and Society

NOTE: Students will remain at a single Open Campus location as no mobility will be offered for spring 2021​

Choose from 13 dynamic cities

CIEE’s Global Institutes are located in dynamic international cities on three continents. You can study at one or move between cities after blocks and/or sessions.
