Short-Term Programs: Summer

Choose from more than 30 summer programs in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and the Middle East. Summer programs are available to both Syracuse University students and students from other colleges and universities.

Short-Term Programs: Academic Breaks

Short-term programs that run during winter or spring academic breaks, or in the first several weeks of summer, are available only to Syracuse University students. These programs are the travel components of Syracuse University courses offered on the home campus or online during the semester. To participate in a short-term study abroad experience during academic breaks, you must enroll in the regular semester course associated with it. The program fee may cover the cost of round-trip transportation.
