Short-Term Programs

If your academic calendar does not permit you to study abroad during the fall or spring semester, you may want to consider summer programs or other programs that occur during winter or spring break.  The College offers a variety of short-term, faculty-led study abroad programs that typically last between one and three weeks.


These short-term journeys usually focus on a particular interest or subject area. However, most are open to all students, regardless of their major. These cross-cultural experiences will enhance your education and may provide you with academic credit.
