International Course Module Program (ICMs)
The Faculty of Arts & Science’s International Course Module Program (ICMs) provides an opportunity for faculty members to incorporate an intensive international experience into the framework of existing undergraduate courses.
Since the ICMs were first introduced, more than 50 groups of students have traveled to destinations in Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe and the United States. Modules are integrated into the course plan and travel is scheduled to coincide with Reading Week.

opportunities will be given to students who have not previously received
funding from Arts and Science for an international experience.
