Summer Programs

Whether you are looking for a summer adventure, can't fit study abroad into the academic year, or both, UP's summer programs offer a unique way for students to earn credits toward their major or core-requirements while abroad. Our summer programs are designed to provide students with six credit hours in just five weeks. While some programs are specific to major requirements, others provide core credit in the areas of literature, art, history, theology, and philosophy, which apply to all UP students. Program fees include housing, tuition, insurance, and excursions. 

Program offerings vary by year, so see our Study Abroad Portal for a full list of current summer offerings.
