AIRC class meetings are held mainly on-site at various points throughout the city, to give students real-world, hands-on learning. Program courses that require in-class seminars are led by AIRC faculty in classrooms at a partner study abroad center within convenient distance of student housing. The center has a student computer lab, a library and quiet study space, as well as wifi access throughout the facility.
