Short-Term Study Abroad Trips: Italy, Dubai, China, and Much More!

The University of Hartford will be offering short-term study abroad programs around the globe this year. Spend one to three weeks abroad over the winter, spring, or summer break with a UofH faculty member and fellow students. You can earn credit towards graduation in a variety of subjects.

These programs take you outside of the traditional classroom setting and introduce you to bustling cities and small villages overseas. Get a first-hand look into a new culture and explore fascinating international topics. What better way to discover the Italian Renaissance than in Italy, the environmental and economic impact of rapid development than in China, or business than in a city as innovative and multicultural as Dubai. There are also trips to Ghana, Japan, and St. Vincent.

Study abroad expands your world view. This is so important for future college graduates no matter what your field. It can help add value to your degree and enhance your future employment opportunities.

Application Deadlines: October 15 for winter and March 1 for summer. Space is limited so apply early! Scholarships are available.

Check out the Study Abroad Website to learn about upcoming programs, and make sure to attend the information sessions this fall to learn more!

  1. Hi,

    These trips offered during school breaks, average 10-14 days but can be longer. Many students that eventually avail themselves of semester-abroad programs in college cite earlier high school experiences as the first stepping stones toward global awareness. Thanks a lot...
