Intensive Courses Abroad

Intensive Courses Abroad (ICAs) offer the opportunity to have an international academic experience in a short period of time (generally 7 - 10 days during break weeks). ICAs are normally led by a Drexel faculty director, in conjunction with an on campus course before and/or after the tour. They include activities such as guest lectures, industry visits, and other hands on events that transform the city into a living laboratory. 

Check the individual program brochure for application deadlines. Applications are typically available 6 - 9 months in advance. New program options are offered every year, so be sure to check back for new offerings!
