CEA Affiliation

CEA Global Education offers more than 100 study abroad programs to U.S. and
Canadian college students. Designed to bridge the gap between college education and
experience, our study abroad programs provide students with hands-on learning and
living in international cities. Students have the opportunity to take classes in another
academic setting, intern with an international business, volunteer to help those in need,
and expand their circle of friends to include international peers and mentors. See the
CEA web site for more information. GREENSTEIN

School for International Training Programs

The College Semester Abroad program of the School for International Training
(SIT/World Learning) provides a unique opportunity to experience other cultures
through language study, a homestay, and cross-cultural orientation. Each participant, in
consultation with the academic study director on site, plans and completes an
independent study project. Most SIT programs also include intensive language
instruction. To undertake any of the following programs, the student must have a grade
point average of 3.0 or higher at the end of the Block preceding the start of the program
and have satisfied the program prerequisites, if any.

Each program awards four Cornell course credits. The particular nature of the credit
varies with each program. The program selection changes annually, so for complete and
up-to-date details and program descriptions for programs offered in Africa, Asia, Europe
and the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the Pacific, consult the SIT
web page [http://www.sit.edu/studyabroad/], or the Cornell program advisor.
