San Jose State University is showcasing the diversity of its community as well as a dedication to providing students with global experiences Nov. 12-16 during International Education Week. The College of International and Extended Studies (CIES), led by the International Student and Scholar Services, has planned a week of fun activities including a CIES Open House, sessions on studying abroad for international and domestic students, workshops on Visas, and a Thanksgiving cooking class. See the full list of activities online.
The week’s activities allow an opportunity for international and local students to connect, explore potential career opportunities, and learn about opportunities to study abroad. SJSU offers traditional semester-long study abroad programs around the world as well as shorter-term faculty-led programs that allow students to experience a new culture while earning credit toward their degrees. Summer 2018 faculty-led courses are available in such far-flung destinations as Costa Rica, Finland, China and Uganda, among many other locations around the world on topics such as health, anthropology, political science and history.
On Friday, the International House will host an International Quiz and Scavenger Hunt. The I-House, as it is known to residents, celebrated its 40th year of providing an opportunity for students from many cultures to live together and learn about each other.
