SUSI Programs for University-Level and Faculty Members:

The Study of the United States Institutes are six intensive six-week post-graduate level academic programs with integrated study tours. The purpose of the Institutes is to provide foreign university faculty and other scholars the opportunity to deepen their understanding of American society, culture and institutions.

These Institutes are an opportunity for secondary school teachers, teacher trainers, curriculum developers, textbook writers, and other educational professionals to attend a six-week post-graduate seminar in the United States.

All of the institute programs require excellent proficiency in English and outstanding qualifications, as these programs are extremely competitive.
