Experiencing Dubrovnik, Croatia with API

Destination Overview

Study abroad in Croatia in the beautiful city of Dubrovnik! Located on the southern tip of Croatia’s Dalmatian coast, Dubrovnik is known for its charming old town, medieval architecture, and gorgeous beaches. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Dubrovnik offers the perfect location to study diplomacy, conflict and peace studies and international relations. Come explore this (re)emerging corner of the Mediterranean and study abroad in Croatia with API!

Though it is a relatively new country in its own right, Croatia has been an influential and important part of European politics and culture for hundreds of years. Independent now for many years and fully recovered from war and division, Croatia is fast losing its status as one of Europe’s best-kept secrets!

Reflections on Twenty Years with API
Reflections on Twenty Years with API

Twenty years ago today (August 15, 2001), I walked into the API office to begin what I thought was a job. Little did I know that when I opened that door I was taking my first steps into a career that would span two decades, nor did I anticipate that this position would lead to lifelong friendships with individuals who have enriched my life exponentially and who have become like family to me.

I loved everything about this program. The people, the location, the food, the trips we took… I would do it all over again if I could.
