Area Studies and Culture
As a student in Area Studies and Culture, you already think beyond borders and the constraints of typical academic disciplines. Are you looking to do a deeper dive into the histories, politics, economics, or cultures of a global region? Study abroad will allow you to gain a firsthand perspective on some of the issues that you may have only ever read about.
The National Association of Colleges an Employers (NACE) has identified equity and inclusion—or the knowledge and skills required to engage equitably and inclusively with people from different backgrounds—as a crucial career competency. Pursuing coursework in Area Studies and Culture with ISA will put you on the right track to deepening your experience with this critical skill.

What Our Students Are Saying
"Engaging in cross-cultural exchange was rewarding for both myself and the host organization. Discussing games and activities that the children and myself liked to play bridged gaps between us. We both were able to come to the realization that, despite growing up on opposite ends of the Earth, we had more similar lives than we thought!"
Benjamin G. Northwestern University
"I could not have hoped for better on-site advisors. They were always available to help with any issue that came up and they are just great people in general."
Andres R. Virginia Commonwealth University
"Don't sweat all the little details. There are people there to support you and tell you everything you need to know."
Michael M. University of San Diego
"ISA is a great program provider. I chose them both for a summer in Barcelona and fall in England. It was one of the best decisions I've ever made."
Kate S. University of Tampa
"I loved ISA and would 10/10 recommend students go through them. The on-site staff was great and the excursions provided a really nice opportunity to meet other study abroad students."
