What's New for Summer & Fall 2020
CEA's mission is to provide students with impactful global experiences that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. In these unprecedented and challenging times, we remain committed to supporting our students and university partners.
Virtual Study Programs
In an effort to help facilitate students’ exploration of international topics without the need to travel abroad, we are offering several virtual study programs in Summer and Fall 2020. Students can choose from a variety of unique, globally-themed courses in subjects such as business, communication, art history, ethics, and sociology, all of which will complement the courses they are taking on their home campus.
Additionally, students will become a part of our global community where they’ll have the opportunity to interact with local students and faculty via global lectures, group projects, and cultural engagement activities. There are two 4-week sessions available in the summer, and a 12 or a 16-week option for the fall semester. Students will enroll in one or two courses during the summer session, and during the fall semester students may enroll in a single 3-credit course up to a full semester course load (up to 15 credits). Program pricing is scaled depending on the number of courses selected giving students flexibility to select the program model that works best for their academic goals and budget. Individual courses start at $1,495.
For information regarding dates, courses, and program activities, please visit our Virtual Study webpage.
Offered across 10 cities in 8 countries around the world, CEA's Virtual Internships help students gain valuable résumé experience, develop a global professional network, and practice working in a collaborative, global team, preparing them for a future in the evolving workplace. Virtual internship placements are available in a variety of career fields including business, journalism, finance, marketing, and many more.
Virtual internship students will complete an online 3-credit internship course in conjunction with their 120-hour internship placement. The internship course blends face-to-face meetings with locally-based internship mentors and NACE certified internship coaches throughout the program.
The Virtual Internship program is offered in two sessions for the Fall 2020 semester, and students may select the session best suited to their schedule.
Virtual internship placements are limited and selective. Students who demonstrate commitment, verbal and oral communication skills, motivation, and flexibility are best suited for a virtual internship placement.

Fall 2020 Onsite Programs
To provide more flexibility for universities, students, and their families to make decisions regarding participation in a Fall 2020 program, CEA has extended withdrawal dates and shorted program dates for many of our study center and partner programs. This gives students additional time to evaluate their fall program options. In cases where programs are now less than 90 days, student visas may no longer be necessary which saves students time and money. More information about our Fall 2020 program updates can be found here.
CEA is grateful for your partnership and support during this time. If you want to learn more about these exciting new program options or if you have questions about our Fall 2020 updates, contact your University Regional Director.
