Programs Offered

CSUN has extensive experience designing custom programs for groups around the world. If you are interested in customizing a short program for your group or organization, CSUN offers many options to build a course of study tailored to your needs. Customized short programs use a cohort format, in which students move through the program as a group, and can last from two weeks to two semesters.

One of CSUN’s most popular pre-packaged programs for international students is the Language and Culture Experience Summer Program, which focuses on English language training and experiencing American culture firsthand. The program typically lasts three weeks and features 15 hours per week of in-class instruction. Students also take part in community events and activities on and around the university campus.
