Summer program in Ireland or Costa Rica!

Bridge Education Abroad Institute (BEAI) plans short programs all across the world to provide students with unique opportunities to experience different political cultures while strengthening their leadership and diplomacy skills. Our programs draw a diverse group of students together from all over the world to discuss pressing global issues while exchange cultural values. In a rapidly globalizing world, we believe these experiences are invaluable to the success of students in the global job market.

For the summer of 2015, we have one program scheduled in Dublin, Ireland and San Jose, Costa Rica during June, July and August. This program will include lectures from experienced professors and guest speakers from all over the globe, including the United States of America. A few of our professors include:

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.
