Study Away/Abroad

Leave the familiar. Embrace the new. Expand your boundaries 

In CCI, we believe that one way to be global is to learn beyond your conventional boundaries. We offer our students multiple opportunities to study in new environments, with new faculty and new peers. Students can tailor their experiences to their needs and can choose from semester-long, summer and short (generally, two-week) options. Our opportunities include studying abroad in international locations and studying away at locations across the United States.

Been There, Felt That

Fantastic classes. Majestic scenery. Wonderful people. Delicious food. Great excursions. So why do you feel out of sorts and out of step with your classmates? Why do you homesick or overwhelmed?
