  • European Crossroads

    This five-week program has proven to be a hit with Honors students eager for an enriching study abroad experience that combines formal study with opportunities to expand one’s cultural awareness. During the program, students take two honors courses, both of which are taught in English by faculty at Clemson’s partner university, the Institute Catholique des Hautes Etudes Commercials. As part of their academic experience students visit historically significant cities. Please visit the European Crossroads Study Abroad  for more information and application.
