What is Central College Abroad?

Since 1965, students from hundreds of U.S. colleges and universities have studied abroad with Central College Abroad (CCA).  CCA’s strong academic foundation comes from being part of a well-respected, private, liberal arts college with a strong commitment to global, experiential learning.

CCA has a set of goals it wishes for each student to accomplish during his/her time abroad, which shapes the core programming that is provided at every Central College Abroad site.  Each of the core components is designed to deliberately enhance the study abroad experience:

  1. Resident directors

  3. Culture course
  4. Cultural excursions
