Study Away Programs

Study Away

Our Approach​

Design Your Custom Program

Great study away programs begin with great program design! From curriculum integration, to site and visit assessment, to logistics, strong education programs incorporate not only key learning outcomes, but also a program flow allowing students the opportunity for exploration. Bring your classroom to life, with our team of Program Managers, to develop a customized once-in-a-lifetime course your students will remember forever! Our interactive program design process will ensure your academic goals are achieved, while much of the heavy lifting is left to our experienced team.

We Are Your Host Partner

The AmeriCenter is your host partner, not simply another “provider”. With your program design complete, you will work closely alongside a dedicated Program Manager through each step of the operational setup. With a local network of logistics partners, our team can gain access to visits and speakers others simply cannot. In addition, we will identify on-the-ground travel arrangements that meet your program budget and specifications. Ultimately, this is your study away program, and as your host partner we will do everything we can to ensure your students are accommodated throughout the program.

Localized Expertise

Experiential learning offers students invaluable insights into cultures and ethnic diversity, no matter where your travels take you. The AmeriCenter has established a unique expertise for study away program development, incorporating operational models for faculty-led programs around the globe. Whether your study away course is studying the entertainment industry in Los Angeles, the history of the Caribbean, energy in Texas, or even indigenous peoples in the Pacific Northwest, The AmeriCenter can help you design and execute study away programs that were previously thought unimaginable!
