CIEE Open Campus allows students to design their own study abroad term by enrolling in up to three 6-week Open Campus Program Blocks. Students select one, two, or three locations* for their semester and take courses in the following subject areas. 
  • Business
  • Communications, New Media, and Journalism
  • Global and Community Health
  • International Relations and Political Science
  • Language, Literature, and Culture
  • STEM and Society (Merida and Monteverde only)
  • At some locations, service learning, internship, and research opportunities are available.
