With its mixture of Western and Eastern values, culture, and traditions, Hong Kong is an ideal gateway to China and all of Asia. Syracuse University's Hong Kong program offers you the opportunity to study the political economies, business, and cultures of East Asia at a pivotal moment in the region's history. As Hong Kong continues to move forward as a Special Administrative Region (SAR) of the People's Republic of China, students not only study–but also participate within–a political landscape and marketplace that will be as important to the 21st century as the U.S. was to the 20th.
Internships are built into the SU Hong Kong program, with students devoting the final five weeks of their semester abroad to a full-time internship or research project in a field of their choice.
A truly cosmopolitan city, Strasbourg is rich with social and cultural options—but still small enough for you to feel at home. The SU Strasbourg program is designed to make the most of all that Strasbourg offers. You'll learn from international faculty members who are professionals in politics, diplomacy, and law. The pre-semester Signature Seminar introduces you to Europe through travel, lectures, and encounters with politicians, teachers, and activists. Course-related field study offers further European travel opportunities, and internships at European institutions allow you to gain invaluable hands-on experience during your time in Strasbourg.
The SU Strasbourg program also offers specialized programs in intensive French language and music performance.
Internships are also available for 1-3 credits in a variety of fields. Students must be enrolled in the semester program in order to take part in the internship.
The program begins with four weeks of intensive Spanish language study at the CEDEI Institute in Cuenca, Ecuador (optional for students with four semesters of college Spanish, required for students with three semesters of college Spanish). A small, artsy city, Cuenca is known for its breathtaking mountain geography and the warmth of both its climate and people. After the Cuenca program, you'll spend the remainder of your semester in Santiago, with your choice of classes at local universities.
The Santiago program begins with the required Signature Seminar, Contemporary Issues in Chile and Latin America. You will continue language study in Santiago, and enroll in at least one non-language class taught in Spanish at affiliated Chilean universities and/or classes at the SU Center.
The SU Santiago program is designed to maximize immersion and language acquisition through homestays, interdisciplinary field study, and enrollment in regular semester classes taught in Spanish at the Universidad de Chile and Pontificia Universidad Catolica. SU Abroad students enroll in classes alongside Chilean students in a wide range of disciplines. Both undergraduate and graduate students have the option to participate in a professional internship.
