SUNY Oswego and CAPA understand that the current global environment is uncertain, and so CAPA’s Flexible Choice programming offers multiple program choices, plus the option to change from an in-country program to a fully online global experience up to 7 days prior to departure.

These programs are available to all undergraduates. During the unprecedented times of COVID-19, we are working to provide students with alternative opportunities for a global education that includes both an in-country option as well as a remote online learning and internship opportunities.

Students will choose from a range of courses across CAPA's Global Centers, covering a variety of disciplines such as art, history, business, finance, history, marketing, political science, writing, and urban/global studies.

Students choosing to add the internship option will gain work experience and develop professional competencies through CAPA's in-country or remote internships and accompanying Global Internship course. These personalized internships provide direct professional placements in international work settings. Learn to work and excel in a global environment with international colleagues remotely. 

Each of CAPA’s new programs will utilize a Globally Networked Learning (GNL) technology. CAPA launched GNL in 2015, making CAPA one of the first international education organizations to enrich teaching and learning with a global perspective through digital classrooms around the world bringing students and faculty together across all CAPA sites. CAPA’s goal is to make online and blended programs as engaging and impactful as traditional experiences on the ground.
