The CISLA juniors generally scatter to the four corners of the globe. CISLA both allows and strongly encourages students to participate in semester or year-long study abroad programs in their regions of interest, and the vast majority of CISLA students choose to do so.

Students are challenged during their junior year by continuing to develop ideas and research for their proposed Senior Integrative Projects and by working closely with the Internship Coordinator to successfully locate organizations of interest and secure a relevant internship position.

While on campus as juniors, students continue to take courses in their chosen "CISLA Language" and prepare for the cultural, linguistic and geographical differences they will encounter as international visitors.
