Students matriculating from institutions that also partner with FIE can receive course credit directly from their
college or university. All other Pi Kappa Phi members will receive a transcript
from Drexel University, FIE’s U.S. school of record.
An international internship through FIE is a
pre-professional, field-based experience coupled with academic analysis and
reflection that helps students develop professional and cultural skills while
providing personal and career awareness.
With an FIE internship, Pi Kappa Phi members will
have the opportunity to apply classroom theory to practice and
to challenge pre-conceived notions of cultures and professional world. This
experience strengthens students’ marketable skills to future employers who now
want people with international experience to help grow their company. Click here

program, which includes facilitated discussions on the Greek foundations of
fraternities and sororities, exploration of the Masonic traditions that
influenced fraternity and sorority rituals, and “reverse culture shock”
training on how best to re-assimilate into the chapter after a semester abroad.
Additionally, members will also have the
opportunity to connect with, network, and explore Europe with other Pi Kappa
