* Overall educational experience
Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.
ASAP is academically rigorous, with a full semester (15 credits) of classes being taken. Classes relate with business, economy, and religion. Classes are run though face-to-face interactions, internet communication, and on-location experiences. Since the classes are taught by Marist professors, there is little change in the educational system. I got much more out of being able to apply what I was learning in specific contexts.
* Host Country Program Administration
On-site administration of your program
The trip was tightly coordinated with two program administrators and two teaching assistants. The administrators have been doing the program for many years so they are very knowledgable on all aspects of the trip. They are always available to help and assist you in any way and are an integral part of the experience.
