CIEE Art and Sciences Program in Hyderabad, India
With jaw-dropping architecture that ranges from Gaudi’s unfinished Sangra Família to the avant garde Torre Agbar to the Golden Fish sculpture designed for the 1992 Olympics, Barcelona is dream city for people who love design. Regardless of your Spanish skills, you can see these spectacular structures up close, and learn about the culture and history behind them – and even intern with a leading architectural firm. There’s more – you’ll also travel beyond Barcelona to see more significant examples of design (and culture!) throughout the region.
Study abroad in Hyderabad and you will:
- Get a leg up on your professional career with experience at a prominent architectural or design firm.
- Learn from experienced instructors who are highly respected in their field.
- Take day trips to explore beautiful Catalonia, plus a weekend excursion to Bilbao, Madrid, or Seville – see how it’s different from – and the same as – Madrid.
Academics are provided in collaboration with the Study in India Program (SIP) at the University of Hyderabad. As a hub for international undergrads, SIP offers specially designed courses for these students to investigate Indian society, history, and culture.
CIEE students can also choose direct-enrollment courses at 11 of 12 schools at the University of Hyderabad, based on his/her requirements and interests. CIEE students primarily take classes in arts, social sciences, and humanities, though students are encouraged to study science if they meet prerequisites.

JWU Academic Planning For This Program
*Specific dates within host web site
JWU students take a Winter term Leave of Absence when participating in semester programs.
Due to the differences between quarters and semesters, when the dates of your exchange program or affiliate partner program include more than one regular JWU academic term (Fall, Winter, Spring), you will need to discuss a Leave of Absence with your financial counselor and academic planner in SAFS. The Leave of Absence is used when JWU students participate in a semester-based program whose Fall Semester extends into JWU's Winter Term or whose Spring Semester begins during JWU's Winter Term; in these cases, students only register for and are billed for one JWU term (Fall or Spring) and take a Leave of Absence for Winter Term.
The Leave of Absence will ensure that JWU understands your academic plans, maintains your student status, and protects your student loans from going into deferment.
THE PROGRAM PARTNER - CIEE
Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE) is an educational organization dedicated to providing challenging and enriching study abroad programs. Learn more about CIEE from their web site. On these affiliate programs, CIEE staff members provide program-specific advising and guidance and answer students' and families' questions about the program details.
The specific course descriptions and options are described on the host website. It is important to plan how the courses abroad will be applied towards your JWU degree.

A list of known credit/course equivalencies is available at the "Courses Offered" link in the fact sheet at the top of this page. If you would like to take courses abroad that do not appear on the list of known credit/course equivalencies, we will help you request a new course equivalency. You are required to complete a Study Abroad Exchange and Foreign Course Equivalency Form for your academic plan abroad in order to coordinate your plan with Study Abroad and SAS. Contact your Study Abroad Advisor for assistance in completing and submitting the course equivalency form.

Since host courses are not from the JWU catalog, you will schedule at JWU for a generic "ABRD4180" placeholder course that is holding the space for the host courses completed abroad. You will only be able to schedule for the placeholder course if you shared your final academic plan with SAS and official summary notes have been written in your JWU degree audit.
Upon completion of the program, the host will send an official transcript to JWU Study Abroad. Previously approved courses which are successfully passed will be applied to the JWU transcript as transfer credit. The typical timeline for your JWU transcript to be updated is 3-5 months.
