UCI Programs

These programs are designed specifically for UCI students and are led by UCI faculty/staff.

  • Most participants are other UCI students, and the number of participants is limited, creating a small, cohort feeling.
  • Program details, such as location, dates, courses, cost, eligibility, etc., may match your needs.
  • Programs may align well with your academic, personal or professional interests.

Discover UCI Programs below.  Programs are added as they become finalized.

UCI Costa Rica Program

In 2019-2020, the UCI Costa Rica Program will be taking the year to revise and update the curriculum; cultivate partnerships with campus units, faculty, and community partners; and seek out sustainable funding to keep this transformative experience accessible to all students. During this year the program will not be facilitating a student cohort or traveling aboard. Watch our website for updates.

Do you want to make a difference in the world? Do you feel an obligation to do good? What does the world really need from you? What do you want from yourself? The Global Service Scholars Program seeks to help students answer these questions for themselves. The program gives priority to students in the School of Social Ecology, but all UCI undergraduates are welcome to apply.
