Ithaca College has several programs available in Spain -- including in Seville and Valencia.
Seville -- The College has an affiliation with the Center for Cross-Cultural Study, a study-abroad program for students with intermediate or advanced Spanish skills. This program is very highly regarded and participants may expect their Spanish skills to improve dramatically.
Valencia -- Ithaca College has an agreement with the University of Valencia, allowing two students to be exchanged from each campus every year. Valencia is a beautiful, cosmopolitan city on the Mediterranean coast of Spain. The university has nearly 60,000 students and a wide range of course offerings suitable for almost any major. This program is specifically intended for students with advanced Spanish language skills because all courses are taught in Spanish and participants will be in classes with native Spanish speakers.
Ithaca College has exchange agreements in Australia with Griffith University in Brisbane, La Trobe University in Melbourne, Murdoch University in Fremantle, and the University of Tasmania in Hobart. All four universities have a wide range of course offerings, and students from any major will find classes to suit their program of study.
Ithaca College recently signed an exchange agreement with Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic. Masaryk offers two programs in English that are appropriate for Ithaca students. The first program is central European studies and consists of 12 credits in courses related to history and culture. The second program is a TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages) training program. Upon completion of one semester in this program, students will receive a certificate in ESL (English as a second language) instruction from the University of Cambridge (England).
Ithaca College and Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have a formal student exchange agreement. Students who will be juniors and seniors at the time of the exchange in Singapore are eligible to apply to this rigorous program. Program prerequisites include evidence of good judicial standing at Ithaca College, a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.20, cultural sensitivity, and the ability to adhere to behavioral norms and a personal code of conduct appropriate for Southeast Asian society.
Ithaca College and Jönköping University in Sweden recently established an exchange agreement. This program is open to students in the Roy H. Park School of Communications, the School of Health Sciences and Human Performance, and the Gerontology Institute.
