How It Works
Dialogue of Civilizations takes Northeastern students around the world to experience different cultures first hand through meetings and discussions. Offered through the Department of International Affairs, Dialogue of Civilizations is an intensive series of two-to five-week summer for-credit programs in more than 20 different countries. Participants meet with government leaders, local groups, and students for one-on-one discovery. Participants may:
learn a new language by immersion
take part in a service learning project
study a specific area of interest.
In the International Human Services Program, Northeastern students discover the culture of Mexico. Participants learn or improve their Spanish; study politics, economics, and social issues; and volunteer at a Mexican organization of their choice.
Students can pursue an international co-op. International cooperative education is a great way for students to develop the knowledge, awareness, perspective, and confidence to feel comfortable anywhere in the world. The experience gained through an international co-op assignment is significantly broader and deeper than the experience offered in traditional foreign study programs.
