Expand your horizons

Immersion opportunities at UW-Eau Claire offer unique learning opportunities around the corner and across the world. These up-close encounters with other cultures, communities and customs expose you to new people and perspectives, and bring classroom lessons to life.

Some immersion experiences are semester-long courses. Others might be a one-week excursion or a two-week Service-Learning project. Many are offered during the summer break or Winterim, or scheduled as alternatives to Spring Break. The common factor? Students are forever changed by their travels, experiences, the people they meet and the things they do. Transform yourself, your outlook on the world, and your future!

What can cultural immersion do for you?

  • Cultural competence is desired by employers
  • Helps you understand your own culture better
  • Exposes you to new customs and languages
  • Increases your appreciation for different ways of thinking and living
  • Helps you discover the similarities people share
  • Allows you to practice skills in a new environment

It's not enough for me anymore to learn about the things that people accomplish in the world through books or on the news. Now I want to be a part of it.
