International Study Abroad for Winter 2016 & Summer 2016

Attention Online and Continuing Education Students Interested in Study Abroad Programs!

We now live in a global world, where it is critically important for today's students to develop the intercultural skills necessary to participate in an international workforce.

In order to provide more opportunities for students, UMass Lowell has launched a more comprehensive study abroad program. Included in this initiative is support for faculty-led, short-term programs.

Through a collaborative effort between the Office of the Provost, the Division of Online and Continuing Education and the Office of Study Abroad & International Experiences, we are expanding opportunities for all students to participate in study abroad programs during the Summer School and Winter Intersessions.

Now you can take a Faculty-Led Study Abroad course for personal interest, or as part of your degree program, with prior approval from your faculty program coordinator. Talk with your degree program advisor today to see if any of the following might be counted towards your degree.
