Develop skills you can use for the rest of your life!

We all have our reasons for studying abroad. Some want the life-changing experience. Others want to see the world. And still others want to stand out when applying for a job or graduate school.

Whatever your reason, you can move closer to your goal with CIEE’s Intercultural Communication and Leadership (ICL or COMM3301) course.

There are as many reasons to take ICL as there are to go abroad in the first place.

Here are just a few:

  • Better understand locals—recognizing similarities and appreciating differences.
  • Enjoy the study-abroad experience at a deeper level.
  • Better navigate the local educational system and be successful in your other courses.
  • Reflect on your experience with peers and knowledgeable mentors, deepening your understanding and appreciation of all you see and do.
  • Create a digital storytelling project to help family, potential employers and graduate school admissions staff better understand your experience and its impact on you.
  • Learn intercultural skills that can apply to any situation in life, from joining the Peace Corps to working in diverse workplaces domestically and abroad.
