Summer Abroad

Short Programs, Long-Lasting Memories

If you are looking for a shorter alternative to a full semester of study abroad, or a fun and fascinating way to earn credits over the summer, you have come to the right place. Summer Short Term Abroad Programs range from one week to two months, but offer full credits towards graduation.

The Columbian College of Arts and Sciences offers a wide range of options in the world’s most fascinating locations—taking your studies beyond the lecture hall and into the global classroom.
