Summer: IES: Study Australia
Sydney, Australia (Outgoing Program)
Sydney, with its iconic Opera House and Harbor Bridge, is Australia’s cultural center. It’s also the largest city in Australia, the capital of New South Wales, and the nation’s financial and economic hub. The site of the first British colony “down under,” Sydney has grown into a cosmopolitan city that scores high marks for quality of life. In addition to its cultural opportunities, Sydney also has its fair share of bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and live-music venues. For all its excitement, however, Sydney retains a laid-back quality. The city has a wealth of parks, gardens, and outdoor pools. A short train-ride inland will bring you to the tranquil Blue Mountains; the other way lie Sydney’s surfing beaches, Bondi, Manly, and Tamarama.
This program follows a traditional study abroad program model with students taking courses on topics of local interest. Courses are taught by local faculty and include a mix of classroom learning and field trips. Students will enroll in two courses for a total of six credits:
Although your adventure begins in Sydney, our field trips take you to other great cities in Australia to provide contrast and context for what you are learning in Sydney.
