AICASA Signs Articulation Agreement with Old Dominion University to Create Study Abroad Program
Date:5/24/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 24, 2013

American International College of Arts and Sciences – Antigua (AICASA) has signed an articulation agreement with Old Dominion University (ODU) that will allow their students to study abroad in Antigua.

The program will permit ODU students to earn three college credits after participating in a cell biology course, taught by AICASA’s faculty, for three weeks. Through an articulation agreement with American University of Antigua (AUA) College of Medicine, students will have the opportunity to obtain medical internship experience at AUA’s medical simulation labs, Mt. Saint John’s Medical Centre, Antigua & Barbuda Search and Rescue, and other health care facilities on the island.

“Our unique study abroad program will give these students an indelible learning experience,” said AICASA Dean Jorge Moreno, Ph.D. “I believe this agreement will be a boon for AICASA and for Antigua in general.”

One of the goals of this program is for students to learn more about the rich history and culture of Antigua and Barbuda. Students will be given guided tours of the twin-island nation and learn about the nation’s culture and history from local experts. To supplement their health care education, students will also attend one seminar each week about Caribbean health issues.

“Learning about the island will establish a connection between these students and Antigua that will continue long after they have returned home,” said Moreno. “This influx of students from the United States will undoubtedly benefit the Antiguan economy and community for years to come.”

The program is now accepting students and the first class of 25 students matriculated.
