EXPLORING COMMUNITY
& CULTURE

OUR EXCLUSIVE COMMUNITY & CULTURE™ COURSE

In today’s global world, it is no longer enough to travel and study in another country. Employers and graduate schools want to know that you have successfully navigated another culture, that you have the skills to work in a multicultural environment, and that you have gone beyond academic tourism.

Set Yourself Apart

Exclusive to IFSA and a distinguishing feature of every program, our C&C course and community engagement philosophy will help deepen your understanding of your host community and our greater global society.

What C&C Offers You

Experience your host city in a way most visitors never can. The C&C course is designed to take study abroad to another level.

Get More Out of Study Abroad

Using your host city as your laboratory, C&C will help make an unfamiliar place more familiar. Get a behind-the-scenes look at your city that you could never learn in a classroom or see on a tour bus.
