Information about WL Faculty-Led Trips

Summer 2014 faculty-led trips:

CAPA International Education

WLU has partnered with CAPA International Education to provide a study abroad experience that will impact a lifetime.  CAPA is an international education organization (IEO) committed to empowering student learning through personal choice, academic integrity, and engagement in urban environments abroad.

Part of the Forbidden City in Beijing, China.

Since 1972, CAPA International Education has provided personalized study abroad experiences that have inspired, excited, and challenged students.  With Global Citiesprogram locations in Beijing, Buenos Aires, Dublin, Florence, Istanbul, London, Shanghai, and Sydney, CAPA has a unique approach to studying abroad called MyEducation which puts students in charge of creating their own self-selected programs by choosing courses, internships and travel that are relevant to their goals.  Through their courses, the selected city becomes a laboratory for academic research.

Students may choose between study and/or internship opportunities in either a summer program or a semester-long program.  Watch this short documentary on CAPA London internships distributed by London’s “Daily Telegraph” to see the possibilities. The film features CAPA students and internship partners, and focuses on the benefits of an international internship, which CAPA has been offering to its students since 1974.
