International Immersion

Experience the difference

CTLL learning programs are multidisciplinary and experiential, bringing together students and faculty from diverse disciplines to apply the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom to real-world situations. Interested in a transformative student experience? Check out the CTLL Global Citizenship Program.

We believe in learning by doing.

The CTLL provides exciting hands-on learning opportunities that take students well beyond our traditional classrooms. The reach of our programs also extends beyond campus, both regionally and internationally. Our learning programs are well-planned, supervised, and assessed to ensure quality in academic inquiry, civic engagement, career development, cultural awareness and leadership.

Cedric Habiyaremye“The international opportunities with WSU showed me possibilities for the future…my dream is to advance local community development needs to improve food security in my home country—this was brought to life through my experiences and support from the CTLL International Immersion Program.”

– Cedric Habiyaremye, WSU Graduate Student

International Immersion Experiences

CTLL International Immersion creates opportunities for students to learn the language of global business, engage with complex interconnected global issues, gain opportunities to study and travel abroad, and become an empowered global citizen.  We work with local partners to create a fully collaborative undertaking so that both students and local partners gain from the experience. Examples include:

  • Rwanda – Economics and Agri-business
  • Brazil – Economics, Industry, and Collegiate Connections
  • Ecuador – Agro-Ecology
  • Ireland – Natural Resources Science
