Get the Most Out of Your Study Abroad Experience!

Planning to study abroad? Want to hit the ground running, fully prepared and ready to deal with the challenges of culture, language, cross-cultural communication, and culture-shock?

Get ready with INST 1001, an online 1-credit, study abroad, pre-departure course! INST 1001 is offered online. The course is recommended both for long and short-term program participants. The course is offered every semester and starts in week 8.

We will explore topics such as stereotypes, identity, culture and how it shapes people, anti-Americanism, culture shock, health and safety abroad, and re-entry shock. You will also have an opportunity to take a closer look at the culture you will immerse yourself in during your time abroad.
