Applications Now Open for 2024 Summer and Short-Term Study Abroad Programs
Syracuse Abroad is now accepting applications for 2024 summer and short-term courses abroad—and it’s never too early to start planning for a summer abroad!
Summer programs, ranging from two to nine weeks abroad, can help students prepare for or try out the study abroad experience before committing to an entire semester abroad. Enrolling in programs over the summer also helps students catch up or get ahead on degree credits and can even provide valuable work and internship experience. Summer programs are also a valuable option for both undergraduate and graduate students who might have trouble fitting study abroad into their busy schedules.
“We are really excited about the variety of this year’s summer and short-term program offerings, from traveling to Italy to study how Italian football teams are using data analytics to studying design in South Korea or taking a closer look at education in Kenya, there is something for everyone,” says Marie Kulikowsky, assistant director of summer and short-term programs. These programs allow students to grow as an individual, gain international perspective and experience new cultures in a condensed amount of time. “We work with faculty across campus to offer something for everyone,” says Kulikowsky.
Summer at Syracuse Centers
During summer sessions, students can choose from a variety of courses at Syracuse Centers in Florence, London, Madrid and Strasbourg. Students can enroll in one or two classes for over two to nine weeks and earn three to nine credits. Sessions are designed to immerse students in the city’s culture through unique activities and city exploration opportunities, along with specially designed weekend trips to surrounding cities and sites.
Summer Internships Abroad
Summer internships abroad provide students with the opportunity to gain international work experience and build a global network. Syracuse Abroad offers a variety of summer internship opportunities, including programs at Syracuse Centers, internships led by Syracuse University faculty, and programs with pre-approved partners in locations including Tel Aviv and Singapore.
In partnership with the Strasbourg Center, Syracuse University students have access to an exclusive internship program at the Council of Europe. This program is ideal for graduate and advanced undergraduate students interested in human rights, governance, diplomacy and international relations.
Faculty-Led Summer Programs
Summer programs led by University faculty are also offered throughout the summer in a variety of locations covering many academic disciplines. Students can study education in Africa, sport management in Australia or design in South Korea. View all faculty-led programs.
The application deadline for all summer programs is Thursday, Feb. 1, and applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.
Spring 2024 Short-Term Programs
Short-term study abroad programs are Spring 2024 main campus courses with a study abroad component. Short-term programs are offered for one to three credits and take place over academic breaks. The extra credit(s) earned for a short-term program abroad is registered during the same semester as the related on-campus course(s) or sessions.
In Spring 2024, Syracuse Abroad is introducing several new short-term programs in collaboration with the College of Engineering and Computer Science, Falk College of Sport and Human Dynamics and the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
New short-term programs include sports data in Italian football, Mexico’s history, culture and security. Popular short-term programs returning in Spring 2024 include environment, sustainability and policy in Costa Rica, EuroTech, Mediterranean food and culture and more.
The application deadline for spring short-term programs is Sunday, Oct. 15, and applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. Students interested in learning more can schedule an appointment with a Syracuse Abroad program advisor.
