Service Learning/Internship

ISA is committed to offering students opportunities to go beyond the classroom and participate in a service-learning or internship program while abroad.

ISA's Service-Learning and Internship division, ELAP, offers opportunities to work at local organizations in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East. ELAP-facilitated programs are available independently or may be combined with an ISA academic program. All ELAP programs encourage personal and professional growth, develop language proficiency, and facilitate meaningful community engagement. Students will develop an ELAP Portfolio throughout the program, documenting their projects, hours, and program activities.

In addition to ELAP-facilitated programs, several of ISA's host institutions offer internships or service-learning opportunities in addition to coursework. Students who choose this option will be enrolled in an ISA program and elect to take an internship or service-learning course through the host university and, upon completion, receive a host university transcript for their coursework.

Custom

ISA Custom Programs are developed in partnership with U.S. universities to offer students unique course options. Cultural activities and excursions, program dates and duration, and academics vary by program. Studying abroad with U.S. university students and faculty fosters a cohesive group dynamic with additional support of ISA staff in the U.S. and abroad.
