January Travel Study Program (3 weeks of travel & study)

These are language and culture programs that combine classroom instruction, activities and travel. The three-week Travel and Study Program features classes three intensive hours per day with practical learning and American cultural events in afternoons and trips on weekends.  Students will be actively using English language skills inside and outside the classroom.  All events and activities are included in the cost and are connected to our learning curriculum.

We provide housing on campus in one of our residence halls to all students for the duration of their stay. Students who meet certain criteria may request to live off-campus. We do not make arrangements for off-campus housing but will provide suggestions to eligible students. Please see the application form for more information regarding exemptions. For more information on housing/meals go here.
