One-year Option

Students will study abroad for the whole academic year. Preparation and the application process for this program takes place the year prior to the student’s study abroad year.

Short-term travel course (UNIV 392) Option

Short-term travel courses are referred to as UNIV 392 courses. These courses provide opportunities for students to earn credit for short-term travel and study while being immersed in a foreign culture outside of the U.S. Enrollment spots in these classes are limited and courses will vary each semester. With faculty advisor approval, students may participate in a university-sponsored trip abroad. These courses are one-semester courses, however the frequency of classroom time varies with each course.
