Argentina, the Philippines and the United Kingdom are among the countries that are participating in the Study Abroad study abroad initiative by U.S. university and university-affiliated research institutes.
The program will enable study abroad students in the United States to study abroad in a variety of academic and cultural settings, including Argentina, Peru, the Dominican Republic, the U.K. and the Philippines.
A full list of participating institutions has not yet been announced.
The aim of the study abroad programs is to help U.s. students get a better understanding of the global and national landscape.
“There’s a lot of people who study abroad who are struggling with some kind of academic crisis,” said Robert Hargrove, dean of the College of Liberal Arts at the University of California, Irvine.
“It’s really hard to find a place where you can go and be comfortable in the time that you have to spend there and you’re able to make it work.
The more you do that, the more you learn.”
Students at U.C. Irvine will be able to attend the following U.N. schools: the United Nations School for Peace and Security Studies, the United Nation School for Cultural Diplomacy and Human Rights Studies, and the UCL School of Global Health and the Middle East Studies.
They will also be able take advantage of the University Libraries’ U.L.I.U.S., a joint online and off-campus online repository of academic articles from the United Languages, the World Languages and Cultures Institute, and other U.l.I.-affiliated sites.
