Comparative Multi-Country Programs since 1959
International Honors Program (IHP) offerings begin with two weeks in the United States before moving on to spend 4-5 weeks in each of three other countries on different continents to give students a comparative look at a critical global issue such as health, human rights, climate change, cities, food systems, or geopolitics. By analyzing issues and systems from a local to global scale, students begin to understand their complexities and the challenges of addressing them. These academically rigorous programs emphasize the multidisciplinary analysis of issues and integrate experience-based learning through 30+ site visits during the semester.
Program cohorts comprise 15 to 30 students, local and traveling faculty, and a dedicated Fellow who travels with each cohort. Daily program schedules run from 9 AM to 5 PM. Explore a day in the life of an IHP student!
