England: Foundation for International Education, London
The Foundation for International Education's (FIE) program in London gives you the opportunity to experience firsthand a complex society through interdisciplinary coursework as well as tailored academic internships, service learning, and research opportunities. An international internship or service learning project provides an opportunity to experience working life in another country and challenges pre-conceived notions of cultures and the professional world. You will take an FIE Key Course, two to three elective courses, and your choice of one of the three pathways. Elective courses, which vary each semester, are generally offered in history, business, music, literature, and sociology. Field trips, guest lectures by London-based specialists, site visits, and other program activities are integrated into all FIE courses. Through FIE, you can arrange your study abroad program to fit your academic and post-graduation career goals.
Additional features: classroom excursions, London Tube Pass, optional extra-curricular excursions/ events
