CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS

Developing intercultural communication skills and international understanding among its students is a vital mission of The California State University (CSU). Since its inception in 1963, the CSU International Programs has contributed to this effort by providing qualified students an affordable opportunity to continue their studies abroad for a full academic year. Close to 11,000 CSU students have taken advantage of this unique study option.

International Programs participants earn resident academic credit at their CSU campuses while they pursue full-time study at a host university or special study center abroad. International Programs serves the needs of students in over 100 designated academic majors. Affiliated with 36 recognized universities and institutions of higher education in sixteen countries, International Programs also offers a wide selection of study locales and learning environments. The institutions are Australia: the University of Western Sydney; Brazil: Universidade de Sao Paulo; Canada: the universities of the Province of Quebec (thirteen institutions, including Universite de Montreal, Concordia University, Universite Laval, McGill University, Universite du Quebec system, Bishop's University, i.a.); Denmark: Denmark's International Study Program (the international education affiliate of the University of Copenhagen); France: Institut des Etudes Francaises pour Etudiants Etrangers, Universite de Droit, D'Economie et des Sciences D'Aix-Marseille (Aix-en-Provence), Mission interuniversitaire de coordination des echanges franco-americains, Universites de Paris III, V, VI, VIII, X, XI, XII, XIII; Germany: Ruprecht-Karls-Universitat (Heidelberg) and Eberhard-Karls-Universitat (Tubingen); Israel: the Hebrew University of Jerusalem; Italy: CSU Study Center (Florence), Universita degli Studi di Firenze, and La Accademia di Belle Arti Firenze; Japan: Waseda University (Tokyo); Mexico: Universidad Iberoamericana (Mexico City); New Zealand: Lincoln University (Christchurch) and Massey University (Palmerston North); Spain: Universidad Complutense de Madrid and Universidad de Granada; Sweden: Uppsala Universitet; Taiwan: National Chengchi University (Taipei); United Kingdom: Bradford University, Bristol University, Kingston University, Sheffield University, and University of Swansea; and Zimbabwe: University of Zimbabwe (Harare).

The International Programs pays all tuition and administrative costs for participating students to the same extent that such funds would be expended to support similar costs in California. Participants are responsible for all personal costs, such as transportation, room and board, living expenses, and home campus fees. Participants remain eligible to receive any form of financial aid (except work study) for which they can individually qualify. For a student not living at home, the possibility exists that a year abroad, except for transportation and sightseeing, will not cost any more than living in the Bay Area. This is an excellent opportunity for a student to continue his/her studies and become familiar with another culture and its peoples.

To qualify for admission to the International Programs, students must have upper division or graduate standing at a CSU campus by the time of departure. Students at the sophomore level may, however, participate in the intensive language acquisition programs in France, Germany, and Mexico. California Community Colleges transfer students are eligible to apply directly from their community college if they can meet this requirement. Students must also possess a current cumulative grade point average of 2.75 or 3.0, depending on the program for which they apply. Some programs also have language study and/or other course work prerequisites.

Additional information and application materials may be obtained on campus from the Office of International Programs, ICTR 3, 338-6377 or 338-1293, or by writing to the California State University International Programs, 400 Golden Shore, Suite 300, Long Beach, CA 90802-4275.

SAN FRANCISCO STATE UNIVERSITY BILATERAL PROGRAMS

In addition to the opportunity to participate in the CSU International Programs, there is also the opportunity to study abroad through the 28 universities located in fourteen countries with whom SFSU has signed special agreements. These agreements call for an equal exchange of students going both ways--those students wishing to study at San Francisco State University from a participating university overseas and students from San Francisco State who wish to study abroad in the host university at which the other student is enrolled. Some of these programs are also college or department specific.

As with the CSU International Programs, the student pays fees at San Francisco State but takes classes at the host university. Again, if the student qualifies for financial aid, aside from work study, these awards can be used to fund the study abroad for one year or even one semester in certain instances.

Additional information and application materials may be obtained from International Programs, San Francisco State University, 1600 Holloway Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94132.
