Special Interest Programs

Special Interest Programs are just that - international experiences focused on an area of student interest such as service learning, fair trade, health care, medical missions, sustainability, research, etc.

Travel opportunities and locations frequently change to provide students with opportunities to visit new locations and study different topics while abroad.

Unlike International Rotations and Travel Courses, Special Interest Programs are not associated with specific degree programs which means they are available to ACPHS students across all years and academic programs.

Examples of past special interest programs include:

  • Independent Research at Sao Paulo University in Brazil
  • International Summer Session at Fudan University in China
  • Alternative Spring Break in the Dominican Republic
  • Medical Mission in Ghana 

To see what exciting new opportunities will be available in the current academic year, please contact the Office of Global Initiatives.
