UCSC Faculty-Led Programs

UC Santa Cruz Faculty-Led Summer Study Abroad programs offer students an international experience with UCSC faculty.  These programs are UC Santa Cruz courses taught abroad, with excursions and cultural activities enhanced by the location. Many provide opportunities for students to visit non-English speaking countries while doing their coursework in English. Class sizes are small — 12-25 students — allowing for an intimate learning experience.
