International/Indigenous Course Module Program (ICMs)

The Faculty of Arts & Science’s International/Indigenous Course Module Program (ICMs) provides an opportunity for faculty members to incorporate an intensive international or Indigenous experiential module into the framework of existing undergraduate courses. International opportunities include partnerships developed with Indigenous nations both within Canadian borders and beyond.

Student groups may submit ICM proposals with a sponsoring faculty member. See submission guidelines for complete information.

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.
