Since 1997, CEA has maintained one simple philosophy: To provide high-quality international academic programs and services. For you, that means support through each step of your study abroad experience, from the moment you apply to the day you return home again. Along the way, you'll learn to adapt and communicate across cultures. You'll earn credits toward graduation while gaining skills that enhance your employability. And you'll discover more about yourself than you ever thought possible.
Studying abroad is a life-changing experience. It's also an experience that may not be for everyone. If you're asking yourself "Why should I study abroad?" your initial curiosity is a good sign. Most people choose to study abroad because they are looking for something new, whether that's a new challenge, new physical or social environment, a new start, or all of those. Among the many dozens of reasons why you should study abroad, many of those involve learning: foreign languages, foreign cultures, more about yourself, and/or more about your home country.
ISEP is an additional option for you to consider when investigating study abroad programs.

CCSU students interested in ISEP programs will enroll through Southern Connecticut State University (see the International Education Coordinator in the CIE for details).
ISA believes that by studying abroad, students not only witness another culture, but they also experience the culture by living a new way of life. We hope that students will gain a cultural understanding and personal independence that can only be achieved by living and studying in another country. Furthermore, we hope that students will continue to reap the benefits of study abroad by encouraging cultural understanding in their own communities. We recognize that this enlightening experience is becoming an increasingly precious asset as we encourage our students to become sensitive, responsible and contributing members of today's expanding global community.
