Arts & Science faculty members have several opportunities to incorporate an international component into their teaching:

  • The Dean's International Initiatives Fund (DIIF) supports the development of new and creative international activities in areas of need not already addressed by existing programming.
  • The International Course Module Program (ICMs) provides an opportunity for faculty members to incorporate an intensive international experiential module into existing undergraduate courses.
  • The 399 Research Excursions Program (398/399 courses) give small groups of third-year students the opportunity to contribute to faculty research as part of their coursework in an off-campus setting.
  • The Canadian Friends of Hebrew University (FAS/CFHU) was established to promote innovative programs, courses or initiatives that support student activities involving Hebrew University.
  • Summer Abroad programs are designed to provide an academic international experience. Students complete full-year Arts & Science undergraduate degree credit courses at universities outside of Canada over the summer and course material is directly relevant to the location in which the course is offered.
  • International Field Courses enable students to conduct independent research in unique settings that cannot be replicated in Canada. A number of units within Arts & Science offer field courses for their undergraduates on a regular basis. 
      • Consult your chair or program director to find out how field courses are developed in your unit. You can also contact us to discuss ideas regarding the development of international field courses.
