Summer 2022 programs
In summer 2022, Syracuse Abroad will be launching a new multi-city, customizable summer program, offering courses and internships in Florence and London. This mix and match summer session will allow students to choose the length, location(s) and courses of their program to best fit academic needs, interests and schedule. Students can spend anywhere from one week up to eights weeks in either or both locations, with an option to take culturally enriching courses or participate in an internship. In addition to academic programming, center activities in each location may include city tours, food tastings and day trips to neighboring cities.
Summer sessions will also take place in Madrid and Strasbourg, with a multitude of courses and programs offered in each location to satisfy any student’s interest. In Madrid, students will spend five weeks taking one or two courses, living with a host family or in a local residence hall. Courses include Cross-Cultural Psychology PSY 400, Sexuality in Spain SOC/QSX/WGS 306/600, The Business of Sports BUA 300.2, and more. In Strasbourg, students will live with a French host family and take one or two courses including French for Diplomacy, Engineering Research projects, Internships and Religion, Law, and Human Rights in a Comparative Perspective. Students can virtually connect with Florence, London and Madrid staff via Zoom on Feb. 3. Learn more here.
In addition to programs at Syracuse Centers, students can participate in a variety of faculty-led programs and internships. Explore the fascinating history of sports in Australia, architectural design environments in Japan, or policy studies in the Middle East. Internships will be offered in 10 different locations including Uganda, Tel Aviv, Brussels and many others. View all summer programs.

These comprehensive plans have been developed in collaboration with campus experts and public health officials, in line with local regulations and resources. Review the COVID-19 center plans.
