The value of short-term study abroad

Our faculty-led study abroad programs vary in length from 3-5 weeks, offering between 3 and 8 credits, and occur during the summer or winter terms. These programs offer students, many of whom who have little or no experience overseas, a supported introduction to comprehending and navigating a new cultural environment. It is our hope that short-term, small group, Purchase faculty-led programs will allow for a larger variety of students to take part in a global education experience that will advance their intercultural competencies and technical skills.

Please contact Dr. Anne M. Kern, Dean for Global Strategy and International Programs, with any questions about creating a faculty-led program or initiating a partnership with a foreign institution.
