The CALL is...

A Unique
Undergraduate Experience

Students can self-design their experience or take a curated semester with a particular focus.  What might your schedule look like at the CALL?

All CALL students take the CALL Internship Seminar and the CALL City Seminar, and two CALL workshops.  Students then choose among selected classes that could fulfill a general education or major requirement, peak their interest, or are a part of a curated semester experience (like Pre-Law or Climate Change).  Students work with both their Academic Advisor and the CALL Director in mapping out their CALL Semester.
