HECUA is a program provider offering 4 abroad programs. Programs offered include Study Abroad and Internship abroad programs in 5 countries such as United States, Ireland, The United Kingdom, and Norway.

HECUA designs credit-earning programs for college undergraduates, employing a philosophy of education that speaks openly of values of justice in our classrooms and communities. During their semester abroad or off-campus here in the United States, HECUA students build the skills, knowledge, and networks they need to be engaged citizens and active changemakers. Students apply what they learn in the classroom to their work in the field, spending up to 200 hours in a supported internship developed by their host organization. HECUA faculty and internship supervisors work as co-teachers, helping students explore the link between theory and practice.
