Using Student Projects to Enhance a Study Abroad Program: United States versus Europe

  • This paper reports on a short-term study abroad program which used cooperative international research projects to enhance the program experience. Both individualized small group research projects and a joint multinational public opinion survey were integrated into the program. The projects were designed to force the program participants to systematically confront key issues associated with the International Finance theme of the program before, during, and after the off-campus period. Thus, the projects served to prepare the program participants for the program, enhance the off-campus period, and provide a lens through which the participant could reflect on their experiences. While this paper reports the experience primarily from the U.S. university group’s perspective, the impact and integration at the other partner schools is discussed. The authors wish to express their gratitude to everyone who supported the effort at each stage of the process and at each location involved in the program.
