This program allows students to study in two or three of the CIEE Open Campus program sites within one semester. Each site follows the same academic calendar composed of three self-contained modules. Generally, students complete two courses within each module. Each course is 0.75 GAC units, so the total for the semester is 4.50 GAC units.
You may stay at each site for one or two modules. Sites include:
- CIEE Open Campus Berlin
- CIEE Open Campus Buenos Aires
- CIEE Open Campus Cape Town
- CIEE Open Campus Copenhagen
- CIEE Open Campus London
- CIEE Open Campus Madrid
- CIEE Open Campus Mérida*
- CIEE Open Campus Monteverde*
- CIEE Open Campus Paris
- CIEE Open Campus Rio de Janeiro
- CIEE Open Campus Rome
- CIEE Open Campus Santiago
- CIEE Open Campus Shanghai**
- CIEE Open Campus Sydney**
** The Open Campus sites in Shanghai, China, and Sydney, Australia, will be new options beginning in spring semester 2020. We will link to the program information as soon as CIEE makes it available. Gustavus students, however, may list one or both of these sites in applications for spring 2020 and later semesters.
NOTE: If you would prefer to stay at one site for all three modules, please apply to the particular Open Campus program directly through the appropriate program e-brochure. Here is a saved search of the Open Campus programs.
Academic Tracks. Each module offers the same array of six academic tracks, as follows:
- Language, Literature, and Culture (no language in London)
- Communications, Journalism, and New Media
- Health Sciences (a public health focus)
- International Relations and Political Science
- Sustainability & Environmental Sciences
Accommodations. Housing options vary from site to site. See each of the Open Campus webpages above for details.
CIEE information. You will find more information about the Global Scholars program here.
Application Process. Global Scholars applicants must complete this application in the Gustavus online system. In addition, you will need to complete a separate online CIEE application for each of the Open Campus sites at which you would like to study, indicating where you hope to spend Module One, Module Two, and Module Three. The Gustavus application deadline is generally March 1 for fall semester or academic year, and September 15 for spring semester.
Note that CIEE reserves the right to change your preferred order of study sites due to immigration (visa) restrictions and other limitations.
