Econ Cultural Immersion

Immersion on a micro- and macro-scale

In your economic studies, you are confronted with everything from the decisions of individuals to the policies of foreign governments; here is your chance to face it all head-on. Cultural immersion programs can last from a few weeks to an entire semester and take you to other parts of the country or the world. You will gain credits towards your degree and fresh perspectives from a diverse number of peers and faculty around the globe.
