Virtual International Partners (VIP) Programs - Spring 2021
Virtual International Partner (VIP) programs provide San Jose State University students the opportunity to learn about another culture while communicating with an international partner for a semester-long virtual exchange. Participants are connected with partners and virtually meet to have discussions on a variety of topics (ex: food, holidays, family, school, etc.) and learn about each other. Students can either take a 1-unit course alongside the program (currently only offered to CHHS students) or participate in a non-credit-bearing version. Click the links below for more details.
Faculty-Led Programs (FLP) - Summer 2021
Faculty-Led Programs (FLPs) are San Jose State University (SJSU) courses taught by SJSU faculty from various academic fields. Courses typically range from 3-6 units and a majority of our programs satisfy upper division GE courses (Area R, S and V). Virtual FLPs incorporate immersive learning activities that highlight the destination and culture of focus.
