The CACP International Studies / Signature Experience Requirement

All undergraduate students in the College of Architecture, Construction and Planning (CACP) are required to participate in an approved International Studies / Signature Experience opportunity as a condition of graduation. The CACP International Studies / Signature Experience requirement is intended to expose students to educational opportunities that go beyond the traditional academic experience. Participation in International Studies is the specified means to satisfy the requirement for architecture and interior design students within the College. Please see curricula listings for B.S. in Architecture and B.S. in Interior Design in the catalog for respective required courses and studios taught only in international locations. Construction Science and Management majors satisfy the requirement by completing a required internship for their degree program. There is typically a Sophomore Convocation during the first semester of the sophomore year during which logistics are discussed, program costs and payment processes and financial aid are presented, and planning started for this international studies requirement. Students are advised to consult the College website or the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Undergraduate Studies for up-to-date International Studies and Signature Experience opportunities, applications, semester assignment, approval processes and forms.
