Rice in Country Overview
We offer Rice in Country, Rice faculty-led summer study abroad programs. Students earn 6 credits in 6 weeks through a combination of coursework, homestay, community engagement, cultural excursions, and interaction with local language partners. Rice in Country programs fulfill the experiential learning requirement for the Certificate in Language and Intercultural Communication.
We are thrilled that Rice in Country returned for Summer 2022 after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19. We look forward to the summer of 2023 and hope to launch new programs for additional languages! We are planning programs in Brazil, Egypt, France, Italy, Japan, Peru, Spain, and Taiwan. Watch the videos to find out about past programs.
