CIEE faculty seminars are more than guided tours. They are intensive educational experiences designed to explore fascinations, challenge preconceptions, and open eyes to global issues shaping the world today. Each program features lectures, site visits, and discussions with overseas colleagues. Participants return to campus poised to incorporate an international dimension into administration, course design, research, and teaching. 96% of attendees polled indicated that the seminar had a significant impact on his/her professional life.
Choose from unique and challenging seminar themes offered in an array of countries that span the globe. Analyze the political and socio-economic transformation of Southern China, unravel the mystery of India, or encounter contemporary Arab culture and society in Jordan.
