Program Overview

This Madison College sponsored program is run by the Council for International Education Exchange (CIEE). Students will apply to Madison College and to CIEE for acceptance on the program.

Course Information

In addition to the CIEE course offerings and requirements, all students accepted into a semester-long Study Abroad program are required to take the Madison College one credit online course titled "Perspectives on Study Abroad". This course is designed as an introduction to and support of residence and study in another country. Students will learn cultural theories, learning styles, cross-cultural communication skills, and strategies for development of cross-cultural competencies. Students will participate in activities designed to increase their cultural awareness, cross-cultural sensitivity, and own adaptability to another culture. The course will facilitate the intense learning process that occurs when individuals are placed in a new cultural context and will challenge students to explore their own cultural assumptions. The CIEE Seminar on Living and Learning may be substituted for this course.

Additional Information

A passport is required for U.S. citizens traveling abroad. If you need to apply for a passport, it is advised to allow at least 6 weeks for standard processing.

All students are required to attend two pre-departure orientations. These orientations provide information on health and safety, packing, trip planning, flight logistics, and other essential information.

Cost

Program fees will be paid directly to CIEE. Please visit the CIEE webpage for specific program costs. http://www.ciee.org/study-abroad/thailand/khon-kaen/community-public-health/

There is a $200 required fee to Madison College that covers Madison College orientation, the academic equivalent process, support before, during, and after Study Abroad, and all associated services.
