Gain cultural perspective

Take your learning to a whole new level by immersing yourself into a culture unlike your own. How the brain works, how people reason and think has everything to do with their culture. This experience can open you up to new norms, developmental skills, and typical behaviors. These faculty-led programs lasting anywhere from a week to a semester-long have one thing in common — they’ll be a life-changing experience.
