abroad semester programs fall under three categories and vary in terms of cultural
integration and variety of courses offered.
Providers: The program is hosted at a study abroad center with a combination of center classes
and university classes.
Program providers are third party organizations (typically U.S. based) that arrange the
logistics such as housing, activities, excursions, and may hold some of the
classes at their center and at the host institution. Other students on the
program are North American study abroad students.
Enroll: Students enroll directly at the host institution with U.S. and
international study abroad students as well as local students. Many students
can live on campus and experience full campus life.
A Chapman student will take the place of a local student and may take courses
in English or the host language as a student of the host university. Students
take classes alongside of local students and typically live with other
international students. These programs require a student to be
more independent, mature, and academically minded. These experiences are very rewarding, as they are
typically the most immersive types of programs.
