About Custom Programs
Whether you want to offer a course taught by your own faculty or a cohort arrangement in an area of interest, CEA provides the expert support, resources, and flexibility you need to create your own custom program in 19 locations around the globe.
The CEA Advantage
We understand how much work designing a custom or faculty-led program requires. From deciding on a theme or topic for your program, to selecting the location, to establishing connections with guest lecturers, businesses, and other experts in the field in the desired program location, to finally making all the logistical arrangements on-site, the process can seem overwhelming. By partnering with CEA, you’ll gain access to our international and U.S. staff expertise and our extensive networks. You won’t have to worry about doing all of this alone... we’ll make every step of the process as seamless and easy as possible.
Located in academically significant cities across Europe and Latin America, CEA can accommodate a range of instruction and program types.
Centers provide instructional technology, office space, computer labs, Internet access, study areas, and faculty lounges. In most locations, your faculty and students may also utilize our international partners’ academic resources and your students may take courses with our partner institutions.

International Staff and Faculty
CEA’s international staff and faculty come from a range of backgrounds; all possess extensive academic experience and expertise in international education that allows them to collaborate with custom program faculty leaders on unique program designs. From conservation in Costa Rica to film studies in France, Mediterranean cultural studies in Spain to business in Ireland or engineering in Italy, our international staff utilizes their first-hand local knowledge and contacts to facilitate academically engaging experiences.
U.S. Staff Support
Our U.S. staff, based in the Phoenix CEA Home Office, and our University Relations team support your faculty and students (and their families) from the program development process through the group’s arrival on-site. Your CEA Regional Consultant and the Custom Programs team work with your study abroad office and faculty leaders to develop a comprehensive program that fulfills your program’s academic objectives and vision, all within a set price that meets your budget needs.
