Welcome to the Center for International Education!
The Center for International Education and Off-Campus Programs Office helps Albion College students engage in study abroad and academic internships, both domestic and abroad. We are the primary office for international student programming and orientation.
The mission of the Center for International Education (CIE) is to promote intercultural communication and exchange, cross-cultural understanding, and transnational competence between the people of Albion College and the global community.
Thinking of studying abroad?
Spending a summer, semester or even a year of your college experience outside the United States can expand your horizons and your resume. It can improve your second-language skills, and help with your learning inside and outside of the classroom. The Center for International Education urges you to take advantage of the opportunites in over 120 Albion College approved programs, in over 40 countries.Studying abroad can offer you a unique opportunity to grow, academically, professional and personally while going on a once in a lifetime adventure!
