CESSI will be held from June 15 to August 7, 2020. Students receive the equivalent of one year of language study during this time and earn eight credits upon completion of the program. In addition to language classes, CESSI students have the opportunity to attend lectures on Central Eurasia and participate in cultural events – the CESSI 2019 program had a traditional Uyghur and Uzbek Dance Workshop as well as visited the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection at the School of Human Ecology to learn about textiles from Central Asia.
CESSI is a great way for students to gain language skills before studying abroad, applying for jobs, or conducting fieldwork in the region. Students of all disciplines and academic programs are welcome!
The priority application deadline is February 1, 2020. For more information and to apply, visit cessi.wisc.edu or contact firstname.lastname@example.org
