Courses

We offer four types of courses:

  • Regular courses
  • International IQ Seminar (all students take this course)
  • Supervised Independent Study (SIS) courses
  • Internships

Depending on the program session selected, students may enroll in a number of regular courses, or a combination of a regular course and an SIS course or an internship. All students participate in the International IQ Seminar course.

  • Section 01 classes are held from 9:00 a.m. - 10:35 a.m.
  • Section 02 International IQ Seminar from 10:40 a.m. - 11:40 a.m.
  • Section 03 classes are held from 11:45 a.m. - 1:20 p.m.

Regular Courses

Classes for the regular courses are conducted on weekday mornings, either at a local campus or in the conference center of the hotel. The professor for each course travels with the group from city to city. Each regular course (section 01 and section 03 courses) is worth 3 credits.

International IQ Seminar

All students participate in the International IQ Seminar, conducted by Dr. Hugo Hervitz, which is worth 3 credits and provides an overview of the history, geography, culture, language, and politics of the countries we visit. Students may select the general version of the seminar (INT 355) or one of its specialized versions (ECO 355, POL 355, or SOC 355).

Supervised Independent Study (SIS) Courses

Students enrolled in a Supervised Independent Study (SIS) course pursue structured independent work, following a well-defined syllabus, under the supervision of one or two faculty members. Each SIS course is worth 3 credits. Not every student is permitted to enroll in an SIS course. Interested students must fill-out the SIS Course Request Form justifying their suitability for the course and their ability to conduct independent work. Students enrolled in an SIS course are required to also enroll in a regular 3-credit course.

Internships

The Forum-Nexus Internship Program provides students with an opportunity to gain valuable academic and professional experience while earning 3 credits for their experience. There are a limited number of openings. There are internships available in Communication, Hospitality Management, Marketing, Management, and Photography & Videography. Students enrolled in an internship course are required to also enroll in a regular 3-credit course.
