What are the details on virtual study abroad courses in spring 2021? - 11.02.20

This post has been archived. The information below may be outdated.

There will be ten virtual courses (five “traditional” seminars and the new virtual global internship courses) offered at our study abroad sites this spring in Costa Rica, Ecuador, Italy, Nepal and Zimbabwe.  

The link includes course descriptions along with details on the types of virtual internships available at each site. The seminars are open to all students at the Claremont Colleges and no foreign language knowledge is required.

The virtual internship courses are similarly open to all students at the Claremont Colleges with preference given to juniors and seniors who may lose the opportunity to study abroad due to the pandemic. A language prerequisite (one year of college-level Spanish) is only required for Costa Rica and Ecuador.

Both courses meet Pitzer’s “Intercultural Understanding Global” graduation requirement (IUG). The virtual global internship course also meets Pitzer’s “Social Responsibility Praxis” graduation requirement (SRX). All courses are cross-listed under Pitzer’s Critical Global Studies (CGS).

Students and/or faculty advisers interested in learning more about these courses or the internship possibilities should feel free to contact studyabroad@pitzer.edu. The Office of Study Abroad will also be happy to schedule one-on-one advising sessions with any students interested in these courses. While the fall semester ends on December 4, administrative offices will remain open until the end of business day Friday, December 18, then reopen after the holiday break on Monday, January 4.

For direct-enroll or exchange programs, will Pitzer defer to other institutions’ study abroad policies? - 07.14.20

For Pitzer students, the College will make its own policy determination for ALL study abroad programs, irrespective of individual providers’ policies.
