SoSS JTA Program

The Junior Term Abroad (JTA) program of the School of Social Sciences began during the school year of 2009-2010. Operationally, the program innovates various SoSS academic curricula, weaving the Ateneo school calendar with that of the partner institutions to allow students to experience academic nd mulit-cultural life abroad. Through the experiences of students participating in the program, SoSS intends to contribute to developing future leaders with a broad global perspective and understanding and thus imbibing sensitivity and appreciation for the cultures and contexts of various peoples.

Students participating in the program are expected to be ambassadors of goodwill. In representing the Ateneo, they are expected to live by magis, cura personalis, and service; as Filipinos, they are likewise expected to have a deep sense of self and nationhood exuding confidence and discipline.
