Tips and Toolkits for Successful Curriculum Integration

Thursday, October 20
2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Room: Heritage

Education abroad professionals are constantly faced with the question, "How will this program fit with my major?" We're spending more time and energy than ever before working with students, faculty, and institutional staff to map out study abroad programs that allow students to take the classes they need (cue: thermodynamics). How can we streamline this process, and help other institutions successfully integrate study abroad programs into their curriculum?
